Kansas City's Top Destination to Live, Work and Play

The Kansas City Power & Light District is a dynamic, nine-city block retail, entertainment, office and residential district, located in the heart of downtown Kansas City directly adjacent to the 21,000-seat Sprint Center Arena. Widely recognized as one of the most exciting urban developments in the country, the $850 million Power & Light District has been the cornerstone of a $5 billion urban renaissance for Kansas City, which includes a new performing arts venue, arena, convention center expansion and 10,000 new urban residential units. The District features 50 unique and captivating restaurants, shops and entertainment venues, alongside anchors such as the renovated Midland and Mainstreet Theaters, the corporate office headquarters of H&R Block, Constentino's gourmet grocery store, and the One Life luxury gym.

The Power & Light District is also home to Cordish's renowned Kansas City Live! entertainment district, one of the most successful entertainment projects in the country, drawing millions of visitors per year. The District also features two luxury residential towers developed by Cordish, One Light and Two Light, which have set a new standard for residential living in the Midwest, as well as a new coworking space, Spark KC.

The Power & Light District was the recipient of the Urban Land Institute Award of Excellence in 2009.
