Project Federal Reserve Bank
With its commanding view of the Liberty Memorial to the North, the new Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City is an important piece of the midtown infrastructure.
BBN served as the Landscape Architect of Record for the 20-acre site. The development of the facility required a careful balance of security needs while responding to the aesthetic expectations of the Federal Reserve. Special attention was placed on the site grading to allow the ground form to transition into the surrounding Penn Valley Park and the Liberty Memorial Mall. Since its completion in 2008, the project has lived up to its expectation as one of Kansas City’s landmarks.
