Facts

  • The complex derives its name from the fact that each of the seven buildings is named after a prominent literary figure.
  • All seven of the structures were built in the late teens and were part of the burgeoning Country Club Plaza District.
  • All seven buildings have state and federal historic landmark status.
  • In spite of the landmark status, developers are unrelenting in presenting proposals to demolish the complex to construct higher density towers with combined office, retail, and residential elements.
  • This development was constructed by the late Kansas City, Missouri, builder Charles E. Phillips, who also built the Hotel Phillips in downtown Kansas City.
