About This File

One Kansas City Place is the tallest building in Missouri located in downtown Kansas City, bounded by 12th Street to the north, Baltimore Avenue to the west, and Main Street to the east. Built in 1988, the 190.1 m (624 ft) skyscraper was designed by Patty Berkebile Nelson & Immenschuh and replaced the Town Pavilion as the tallest building in the city.

One Kansas City Place is considered an architectural salute to City Hall, which is located 5 blocks east of Main on 12th Street.

One Kansas City Place was constructed as the first part of a much larger project named Kansas City Place, which never was completed. The project was to include townhomes, office towers, and residential/hotel towers. The Kansas City Place project was originally proposed during the real estate boom of the 1980s. The plan was developed by Frank Morgan and his uncle Sherman Dreiseszun who had earlier built Town Pavilion that was completed in 1986.

The tower was proposed for the South Loop (So-Lo) area south of downtown's central business district. The project included a plethora of skyscrapers with uses ranging from offices to hotels and residential buildings. Unsubstantiated claims hold that a major cause of the project's failure to come to its full stature was the complaints of residents, claiming it would ruin Kansas City's skyline, which had remained largely unchanged for 30 years.

One Kansas City Place was to be the third-tallest of several towers constructed, though it is the tallest that was actually constructed. Today, it is one of the most recognizable buildings in Kansas City's skyline.

Well worth adding to the scroll menu of landmarks. 5/5.   Comparing to the Columbia Tower (Seattle) and Willis Tower (Chicago), the images I'm seeing of One Kansas City Place show a bit more reflection of light and color, less solid black, but the contrast and highlights look great at night.

      Denver Place is an office complex in Denver, Colorado, comprising the North and South Towers, Terraces and the Granite Tower. It is Colorado's largest commercial office property. Denver Place South Tower is the tallest building of the complex. It is 416 feet (127 m) tall, has 34 floors, and was completed in 1981. The Denver Place complex is located in the downtown area of Denver, Colorado and mostly consists of four high-rise buildings spanning two city blocks. The Denver Place North and South Towers take up the southeastern block. They were developed in 1981 by Devco Property Inc. from design by Marvin E. Knedler & Assoc. Architects, P.C. The South Tower is the tallest, reaching 416 feet (127 m) with 34 floors, while the North Tower is 285 feet (87 m) tall with 23 floors. The two towers are elongated hexagons made of silver grey aluminum panels contrasted by dark grey reflective glass. They sit diagonally from one another, connected by a six story terraced building. At street level is a retail mall. The building has won many awards including the 2005 Denver Metro Building Owners And Managers Association Building of the Year Award in the Earth Award category and the Gold LEED-EB Label for its green design.
      The northwestern block holds the Granite Tower (Denver), built in 1983. Formerly known as the Plaza Tower, this skyscraper stands at 398 feet (121 m) tall with 31 floors. At the north end of this block is the Ritz-Carlton Denver, the city's first and only Ritz Carlton, formerly an Embassy Suites Hotel. The building is 390 feet (120 m) tall and has 38 floors.
      Both the Granite Tower and the Ritz-Carlton parts of Denver Place were sold. Granite Properties paid $161 million for the Denver Place Plaza Tower at 1099 18th St., which includes the Embassy Suites Hotel, The Apartments at Denver Place and the Athletic Club at Denver Place. However, it simultaneously spun off the hotel, the luxury apartments and the health club to BWAB Real Estate Ventures.
