NAI Martens, Wichita Commercial Real Estate

It’s Thanksgiving – the time of year when we all take a moment to acknowledge what we are thankful for. Our city is making great progress and there are a number of proposed, under construction and recently completed developments that we are thankful to have or have coming to Wichita!


#1: Riverfront Village

At last Wichitans are expected to get a development that most have wanted for years – something that will bring restaurants, bars and more along the Arkansas River. Riverfront Village will be a 7-acre mixed-use development just south of Douglas and north of the new baseball stadium site. The development is still in the preliminary stages but it could be a game-changer for the Delano area. Read More


#2: Baseball Stadium Remodel

In October the City Council voted to approve the ballpark development that would mean a 7,000-seat stadium on the site of the Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. The stadium would be the home for a Triple-A baseball franchise, the New Orleans Baby Cakes. Read More
