Kemper Arena is headed for destruction, but Kansas City won’t have it paid for until 2016
Get your Flipcams ready. Kemper Arena is going to meet the wrecking ball.
The Kansas City Business Journal reported that Kemper has a date with destruction, and it’ll be replaced by a 5,000-seat Agricultural Events Center.
In September 2010, The Pitch reported that the city still owes $11.9 million on the seldom-used arena. Not sure what that figure is now, but we reported that the debt from renovations wouldn’t be paid off until 2016.
