Changes may soon be coming to Aspiria, the former Sprint headquarters that is undergoing a larger-scale remodel, including the addition of a new 100,000-square-foot entertainment facility and pickleballs courts. Photo credit Leah Wankum.

A revised plan for the initial phase of work at Aspiria on the sprawling site of the former Sprint headquarters in south Overland Park now includes an indoor gaming venue and a more than 400-unit apartment complex.

Driving the news: Wichita-based developer Occidental Management received approval from the Overland Park Planning Commission last week for a new preliminary development plan for the first phase of Aspiria, comprising a sliver of land on the northeast side of the complex between Nall Avenue and the Jewish Community Center.

The first planned phase of work on Aspiria will focus on land between 115th and 117th Streets, just west of Nall and east of the Jewish Community Center (outlined in red, above). Image via Overland Park city documents.

Entertainment facility: At the northwest corner of 117th Street and Nall, Occidental is looking to build a 103,430-square-foot building for Andretti Indoor Karting & Games, an Orlando-based company that operates a chain of go-kart and arcade facilities.
