One Kansas City Place
Structure in General
- As measured from its Main Street entrance the building rises 574'-10" to its main roof parapet and 583'-9" to its mechanical penthouse roof parapet.
- One Kansas City Place was the final site choice after KCP&L failed to get tax incentives for Kansas City Power and Light Headquarters. The city would not grant additional tax incentives inside the Power & Light Entertainment District, which derives its name from the venerable Kansas City company.
- In 2008, KCP&L leased approximately 300,000 square feet on 12 levels to house 700 employees, moving from 1201 Walnut, home to the corporate headquarters since 1992.
- In October 2008, Kansas City Power & Light Co. signed a 23-year lease to move into Missouri's tallest office building and will emblazon its 15-foot-high blue and green lighted "KCP&L" moniker atop the structure.
- The architects and engineers designed this building to be an '80s version of Kansas City, MO's famed 30-story art deco Kansas City City Hall. The similarity is unmistakeable when one views the two buildings on the skyline. This building was completed on the 50th anniversary of City Hall's completion.
