[b]Cosmosphere Plans to Expand[/b]
The Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center has completed the purchase of the former Hutchinson Floral and Gifts building located south of the Cosmosphere at 521 East 11th Ave. Hutchinson Floral and Gifts closed on December 31, 2005.
The acquisition of the property will give the Cosmosphere the opportunity for growth. The board of directors is considering different options for site development. "Expansion on the current property is no longer possible so we are excited to know there is growth potential," said Cosmosphere Senior Vice President, Jim Remar. The expansion will be the first major physical growth project since the facilities grand reopening in 1997.
"Now that the sale is complete the Cosmosphere foundation board will be conducting a fundraising drive to cover the cost of the property, plus site improvements," said Ann Brown, foundation board chair.
