Rendering: Royals crown the West Bottoms with stadium

A new rendering showcases what a Royals stadium based in the bottoms would offer.

Looks like the crown is back in play.

The Royals have been hunting for a new stadium spot and batter up, West Bottoms, it’s your turn at the plate.

After Gov. Kelly signed a bill allowing the Chiefs and the Royals to use STAR bond funds for building stadiums in Kansas, a new rendering was released.

The new stadium would be nestled near the Kansas River — next to I-670 and State Line Road in the West Bottoms — and would carry the same dimensions as the current K.

The right field fence is aligned to run across the Kansas-Missouri state line, meaning a batter could literally hit one out of the park and out of the state. And, most importantly, the beloved Crown scoreboard + fountains which were missing from previous renderings are now front and center.

Built to frame the KC skyline, the ballpark district would also feature:

  • Restaurants + Bars
  • Beer gardens
  • Rooftop terraces
  • A hotel
  • Offices
  • Residential lofts

Is this design a home run? Let us know.
