Renderings Released for New Margaritaville Hotel in Kansas City, Kansas

Kansas City, MO – January 31, 2024

Margaritaville, the global lifestyle brand, in partnership with locally-based Homefield KC and Sunflower Development Group, LLC, has released renderings of their new Margaritaville Hotel Kansas City slated to open in Spring 2025.

Generator Studio serves as the Architect of Record for the 229-room hotel featuring a Landshark Bar & Grill, conference center, lobby bar, coffee shop, indoor pool, and arcade. Guests will be able to step out of their first-floor suites to 73,000 SF of outdoor amenities including an unparalleled zero-entry outdoor pool with in-water lounging, 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar, in addition to turfed live performance, hammock, and yard game areas.

With hospitality-focused design leading every project Generator Studio touches, providing lifestyle-oriented designs uniquely authentic to the brand has been at the forefront of the partnership between Generator, Margaritaville, Homefield, and Sunflower Development. 

We’re thrilled to be allowed to present our passion for melding hospitality and interior design with a global hospitality brand like Margaritaville,” said Christina Franklin, Generator Studio Director of Interior Design. “Finding the unique opportunities to showcase Midwest culture with the existing identity of the Margaritaville brand has been especially exciting in the design process.”

The building is designed with two prominent features: a two-story guest amenity building intersecting a six-story tower accommodating the hotel rooms. At the guest amenity building, visitors will be welcomed to the hotel with warm masonry, reminiscent of the varying tones of Kansas limestone. The tower is gleaming white, a classic Margaritaville coastal element. As these two masses fold into each other, they link the brand to its newest Midwestern location. 

“At Margaritaville, we carefully and thoughtfully choose which markets to enter and are excited to build upon our footprint in the Midwest region with Margaritaville Hotel Kansas City,” said Rick Cunningham, Senior Vice President of Development at Margaritaville. “Kansas City is a lively destination and we look forward to investing in and becoming a dedicated part of the community.”

Situated directly east of The Legends at the northeast corner of I-70 and I-435 in Western Wyandotte County, the hotel serves as just one piece of the $848 million Homefield Masterplan.
