Roeland Park reports lack of interest from developers for restaurant, hotel, and adventure course concept at The Rocks

The city approved spending $7,500 for the above rendering demonstrating mixed-use opportunities.

A lack of interest is forcing Roeland Park’s Ad-Hoc Development Committee to shift its development focus for the old pool site, known as The Rocks. The city has been working to generate interest for the site from a restaurant, hotel, and adventure course – as depicted in the architectural rendering being used for marketing purposes shown above.

Zip KC and Sunflower Hotel Group had shown initial interest in the site but have not followed through with formal offers. The city also did not receive any responses for its request for qualification, or RFQ, which invited potentially interested parties to present development concepts for The Rocks, councilmembers heard Monday.
