The former Century Link building will be the site of the first implosion in Overland Park history.

Crews will implode the 10-story, 162,000-square-foot building early Sunday morning, making way for an innovative office campus called Overland One at one of the most visible corners of the city. The site also included a three-story, 56,000-square-foot structure that crews demolished in December.

VanTrust Real Estate purchased the property in 2015, and is partnering with Burns & McDonnell to design and build an office campus on the site. The first phase of the proposed Overland One development will feature a five-story, 125,000-square-foot office building, along with a four-story 102,000-square-foot office building.

Burns & McDonnell begins construction on the project in March, and both buildings are scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2018.
