Kansas City Live!

Kansas City

KC Live! is a dynamic $330M mixed-use retail, entertainment, office, and residential district located on a city block in what is known as the Power & Light District, a 9-block development in the heart of downtown Kansas City.

Considered the Midwest’s premier entertainment destination, KC Live! has two levels of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The complex features a full-concert stage where premiere musicians perform. To economically accommodate high capacity events, Walter P Moore performed several structural option studies, culminating with the use of precast, pre-stressed concrete bridge girders to provide the capacity to support the two story building and to meet vibration limitations.

The demolition of numerous buildings was required for the new entertainment district. Walter P Moore assisted in the preparation of drawings and specifications for the removal of several of these buildings as well as coordinating the demolition. Our Diagnostics Group performed studies and tailored customized design solutions to renovate two historic theaters within the District.
