Welcome to Crystal City Underground Home page
CCU, a former sand mine, is located in Crystal City, Missouri and fronts Plattin Creek, within a mile of it's intersection with the Mississippi River. It is 6,000,000 million square feet of enclosed underground climate-controlled space. Approximately 200 acres. It has 30-40 ft. ceilings. The facility was originally created as a by-product of a sand mining operation. Consequently, thick pillars were systematically cut out of the rock, forming a asymmetrical grid.
Our Vision is to become a cultural and convention facility with the most unique sports and recreational amenities ever conceived to compliment our proposed green industrial facility. Space is/will be available to extreme, recreational and Olympic venue sports operators and green industrial users. The CCU Sports & Industrial complex will be designed to accommodate separate access and common areas for each use. The floor plan of the facility will allow for easy build-out for your sports training needs. We are currently accepting business plans for consideration.

Kentucky Exposition Center
Our project is being patterned after the Kentucky Exposition Center. The facility supports over 7,000 jobs and boasts over 1,000,000 square feet. It is very successful bringing millions of dollars of tax revenue into the community and hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue from out of state visitors, that attend hundreds of events annually. It is one of the ten largest in the world. Our project at minimum will be double the size when completed. Please visit the Kentucky Exposition Center 's website and browse their events and financial statements to understand what Crystal City Underground can be with community support.
