The Board of Public Utilities provides water and light service within the corporate limits of
the Unified Government of Wyandotte County, Kansas City, KS.
The AIA Awards Jury cited the building's noteworthy lighting, overall design pattern, and the sign graphics at the front entrance.
Interestingly, an historic building from another century stood on this site before: The
3,000 seat Electric Theater, built with a full orchestra pit in 1902 for vaudeville (before
silent films) saw its final curtain call followed by a wrecking ball in 1969.
Although it's administrated by a separate, publicly elected, six-member board, the building
is a property of the Unified Government.
This building has received three distinguished awards for its architectural and lighting designs from the Central States Region of the American Institute of Architects. There were more than 150 entries.
