Facts

  • The building's ornament was designed to symbolize the excitement and energy of electric power.
  • Gailoyd Enterprises, of Carmel, New York, has owned the historic building since 1965.
  • The Kansas City Power and Light Company has not occupied its namesake building since it leased space in the new 1201 Walnut Building in 1992.
  • There are no windows on the west facade from ground level to the top because an identical twin tower was to be added and connected before the financial devastation of the 1930s Depression forced the plans to be abandoned permanently.
  • The crowning pillar of changing colored lights is 97 feet high and creates a "jewel-like" glow for miles around. The light's cycle goes through the colors white, amber, red and green.
  • Missouri's tallest building when completed. The building is clad with Indiana limestone. There are small observation balconies at the 32nd floor.
  • In 2014-2016, a $70 million renovation converted the building into 210 apartments. It is the tallest residential building in Missouri.
