Mortenson and Populous and SRG Partnership have been picked by Hillsboro’s Hops as well as the City of Hillsboro to oversee the Ron Tonkin Field reconstruction.
The new MiLB facility standards mandated by MLB will be met by the refurbishment project. Project goals include renovation, completion, and expansion of the home team, visitors and coaching/umpire staff facilities, as well as necessary infrastructural changes to ensure compliance with regulations.
A total of four design-build teams from all throughout the country submitted their bids to us. In a press release, Sean Morrison, Senior Project Manager for Mortenson, SRG, Populous stated, “The Mortenson, SRG, Populous team stood out because of their highly personable, right-sized, and community-oriented approach to this project,” Morrison added. In addition, their tried-and-true approach to DEI and support and development programs for COBID subcontractors was an essential role in their success. Those businesses in our neighborhood would benefit greatly from this, we believe.”

Unveiling The Wichita Ballpark District
To bring Wichita Wind Surge to the city, the city sold the land for this development at a cost of just $1. It was first hinted about in December of 2021, but the specifics have finally been revealed. EPC Real Estate Group is developing the project in collaboration with the city and the team. It will be part of the Dream Hotel Group, a luxury brand designed to be suited to each region. There are 155 rooms in the new hotel.

Home plate views can also be enjoyed from the hotel’s rooftop balconies. The hotel accounts for 40% of the district’s anticipated total of $70 million, which includes riverside trails and other enhancements on the Arkansas River’s west bank.

When we brought the team from New Orleans, we promised the City of New Orleans that we would do everything in our power to honor that promise.” “Unscripted Wichita will raise the bar for the local hotel business in terms of quality, customer service, and value, just like the stadium did for Minor League Baseball.”
