Finally! The Grand Opening of Vista Field is Set for June 16th…
It's really a pretty big deal, the Grand Opening of Vista Field!
The municipal airport at Vista Field closed in 2013. Since then, city and county officials have worked to devise a plan to transform the 103 acres into a town center with neighborhoods and lifestyle amenities.
When is the Grand Opening?
The celebration will be on June 16th at 2:30 pm. The Port of Kennewick, city, investment partners, and Benton County invite everyone to attend the opening of the Vista Field urban town center.
What can you expect at the grand opening?
There will be a celebration with music, food trucks, and a photo booth. You'll be able to walk the streamside promenade and drive across the new Crosswind Boulevard. In addition, you'll be encouraged to check out all the amenities including pedestrian bridges, fountains, a pond, a commercial plaza, and more.
The Kennewick Fire Department's new Vista Field Station #3 will also be open for tours.
What will the finished project at Vista Field be?
The port says once the entire site is finished:
The development will feature a network of finely-grained streets with wide, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and other urban lifestyle amenities. Vista Field will foster new jobs, housing options, civic amenities, entertainment, and recreational opportunities that everyone can enjoy.
There will be a mix of residential options appealing to various ages and incomes at full build-out, including single-family homes, condos, multi-family housing, spaces for mother-in-law cottages, and even opportunities for places to live above and work below.
