The American Royal has secured land in its planned move to new facilities in a $250 million complex to be developed in Wyandotte County.

The American Royal has secured the 115 acres in Kansas City, Kansas, where it plans to build its new $250 million home, the nonprofit announced Tuesday.

The news comes more than three years after the agriculture education and competition organization announced that it planned to relocate from its longtime home in the West Bottoms to the area northwest of Kansas Speedway near Legends Outlets Kansas City.

The facility aims to be “the national destination for the food and agriculture industry, the Epicenter of Agriculture — a vision that will elevate the presence of the longstanding Kansas City tradition,” the American Royal said in a release.
