The 100,000-square-foot KCK Community Education, Health and Wellness Center is scheduled to open in 2025

Kansas City Kansas Community College is planning to build a $62 million facility in the city's downtown.

The Kansas City Star reports that the four-story KCK Community Education, Health and Wellness Center will provide academic programs, health care services, financial literacy and other training. The 100,000-square-foot center is slated to open in 2025. The college's main campus is about seven miles west of downtown.

“This center is a national model for nonprofit collaboration across the country,” College President Greg Mosier said in a news release. “It will offer programs and services desperately needed to create a self-sustaining economic solution for the downtown KCK community that will help end many social and economic inequities that have prevailed for decades. The college looks forward to returning downtown, just two blocks from where the college began a century ago.”

The center plans to offer a host of services aimed at addressing socioeconomic inequalities, such as technical and academic programs. That includes a two-year associate degree in commercial construction technology for students in 11th and 12th grades.

The architect is PGAV Architects, and the construction manager is McCown Gordon Construction.
