46 Penn Centre


PROJECT

46 Penn Centre

DESCRIPTION

46 Penn Centre is a 13-story high-rise corporate headquarters. It features eight stories of offices placed above six stories of parking. This building is the newest addition to the skyline of the famous Country Club Plaza area in Kansas City. It was strategically located on the outside perimeter so not to interrupt the smaller scale of the areas of this historic district.

The exterior is a contemporary design with monumental glass accenting the key design feature of architectural precast concrete. The precast is exposed with a combination of retarder, acid etch and sandblast finishes. It features multiple integral colored mix designs. At the base, granite cladding is cast into the precast, blending perfectly with the surrounding historical buildings. The two-story main entrance lobby features a glass-curtain wall to take advantage of their great views of the Country Club Plaza.

Enterprise Precast Concrete worked with the architect, contractors and developer from the earliest phases of the design conception.
