The Edgemoor Team concluded the last of nine Community Design Workshops for the KCI New Terminal project, capping another productive week for the team in Kansas City. The workshops were part of a months-long effort to engage citizens and the business community, capture suggestions, and foster a meaningful dialogue around elements of the forthcoming KCI New Terminal project.
Edgemoor first began the interactive workshops in November to meet and listen to residents in all of Kansas City, Missouri’s six council districts and Johnson County, Kansas, as well as with business leaders in two special sessions with local chambers of commerce.
Attendees, who ranged from frequent flyers to individuals who used the airport less than once a year, participated in an interactive workshop, which blended a design overview with live polling and small breakout sessions led by members of the Edgemoor Team. During these discussions, participants responded to a series of questions designed to spark creative thinking on the existing terminals, as well as capture ideas and insights on various topics surrounding the new structure, such as technology and how to embody the spirit of Kansas City in the airport's design.
These workshops are another important step forward for the New Terminal project. The information gathered will help influence design decisions, ensuring that the airport meets the needs of end users, reflects the region, and is a modern and welcoming new gateway for visitors and citizens alike.
Thank you to the hundreds of caring and committed individuals who joined our team, and contributed their voice to an important conversation regarding Kansas City's future!
