Berkley Riverfront Park’s has several new developments in the works. The Origin Hotel, a boutique five-story hotel, is expected to be finished in 2024 and as of last month, developers broke ground on a new beer garden.
The beer garden Two Birds, One Stone will be stationed on the waterfront directly across from the Origin Hotel. Expected to open in the summer of 2024, Two Birds, One Stone is a nearly 8,200 square foot, two-story structure housed on half an acre inside the portion of the park known as “The Grove”.
Two Birds, One Stone’s design will use “simple and refined building materials immersing the visitor into the park atmosphere,” according to Pork KC. Along with the new beer garden, The Grove will also see extensive new tree planting and native landscape.
“The beer garden will offer more outdoor food and entertainment options to residents in the Riverfront neighborhood, Kansas City visitors looking for more outdoor entertainment, and offers convenient options for both Riverfront event attendees and Origin Hotel guests planning their entertainment, sporting, and vacation trips,” the press release states. “It’s the latest step toward Port KC’s fast-developing plan to make Berkley Riverfront a must-experience KC destination.”
The Thrash Group is the property management group behind both of the Origin hotel and Two Birds, One Stone. The beer garden, however, is a collaboration between both The Thrash Group and Port KC, a development group that “plays a critical leadership role to ensure that Kansas City’s riverfront becomes a long term economic and cultural oasis,” according to their website.
