Kansas City-based 360 Architecture has sold to HOK. 360 Architecture was founded in 2004 through a merger between CDFM2 Architecture and Heinlein Schrock Stearns. The company designs stadiums, ballparks, arenas, rec centers and entertainment districts. It has approximately 180 employees in Kansas City, San Francisco and Columbus, OH. The acquisition of 360 gives HOK a presence once again in Kansas City and in the sports facility business.
HOK is an architecture, engineering and design company which previously had a Kansas City office devoted to sports facility design, but broke off in 2008 and changed its name to Populous. HOK has offices in 23 cities around the world. It was founded in 1955, and employs about 1,600 people.
The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
