History of the Kansas City Power & Light District

The Kansas City Power and Light District in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, was developed in the late 1990s by Cordish Companies of Baltimore, Maryland. Bounded by Baltimore and Grand Avenues, 12th Street and Interstate 670, the district is named for the Kansas City Power and Light Building skyscraper that is part of the district. KCPL serves as a mixed use district, including shopping and restaurants, entertainment venues, office spaces, and living spaces.
