Renowned hotel and brand management company Dream Hotel Group, has announced plans to open a 155-key hotel as the centrepiece of the new Ballpark District mixed-use development in the heart of downtown Wichita, Kansas.
Scheduled to open in 2024, Unscripted Wichita will feature 155 beautifully designed guest rooms and multiple food and beverage offerings, including a signature restaurant on the street level and an impressive rooftop bar and lounge with sweeping views of the downtown skyline and Riverfront Stadium, transforming the section of S. McLean Blvd between Maple and Texas Streets into a communal gathering place for guests and local Wichitans to meet, eat, drink and play.
“The Unscripted Hotels brand is a great fit for the city of Wichita. Driven by local food and beverage, thoughtful design and a culture of friendly service, Unscripted gives travelers what they want in a hotel – an authentic experience that delights the senses and enhances their lifestyle, but at a more accessible price point,” said Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein. “We found a great partner in EPC Real Estate Group, a company that plays an important role in Wichita’s history and transformation story. We are excited to collaborate with such a talented group who understands and appreciates our brand of hospitality and represents the values we share in contributing to the revitalization of great cities.”
“We are very excited to announce Unscripted as the centerpiece of this landmark redevelopment,” remarked Austin Bradley of EPC Real Estate Group. “We are eager to build on the existing momentum within Delano and continue to elevate the Riverfront Stadium experience for the entire community. This notion remained at the forefront when selecting the hotel brand and management company, and Unscripted will do just that.”
Led by Kansas-based developer EPC Real Estate Group with architectural design by DLR Group, Unscripted Wichita is poised to become a catalyst for the area and an integral part of Wichita’s downtown redevelopment efforts. When open, the boutique hotel will be the hospitality centerpiece of Wichita’s new Ballpark District, a large, mixed-use development that adds three signature buildings and 120,000 square feet of class A office, retail and restaurant space to Wichita’s West Bank and Delano community. Located adjacent to Riverfront Stadium, the downtown redevelopment efforts also include significant improvements to the west bank of the Arkansas River.
