$39 million conversion of Kemper Arena to Mosaic Arena begins

Historic Kemper Arena began a new era Tuesday as ground was broken to turn it into a sporting center named Mosaic Arena.

After years of discussion and putting the pieces together, Foutch Brothers plans a $39 million conversion of the Kansas City venue with the help of historic tax credits and a 10-year tax abatement.

The resulting two-level facility will accommodate indoor soccer, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, dance, fitness, running and other activities.

Mosaic Life Care, a St. Joseph health care company, bought the naming rights.

Kansas City turned Kemper over to Foutch Brothers for $1, saving the city more than $1.2 million a year in maintenance costs.
