Friday, December 15, 1933

Rode with Nadine this a.m. Daddy got a job. I went to dentist. Had tooth put in. Stayed with Mrs. Raifert.
Kansas City Power and Light Building
AKA KCP&L Building
Kansas City, Missouri
Construction Started: 1930
Construction Completed: 1931
Height: 476 Feet
Floors: 34
Style: Art Deco

The original plans designed by Hoit, Price and Barnes included a twin building to be paired
 on the immediate west side of the building, but plans were abandoned after the Great
Depression took a greater toll than expected. As a result, the west side of the building has
 no windows. After its completion in 1931, the Power and Light Building was Missouri's
tallest habitable structure at 36 stories, until the completion of the One U.S. Bank Plaza
building in St. Louis in 1976.

In 2002 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
