Emerald Center Convention Facility

The Mataharians, a secret society of mid-level female executives who work in Downtown Kansas City, have laid hands upon preliminary plans for the new convention hotel. This view shows the building at the Power and Light site. The Center will include a 2,000 room hotel, expanded from the original 1,000 rooms, an office complex adjoining and linking up with the Power and Light Building and convention hall facilities on the north side which will compete with Bartle for bookings and are intended to pay for the operation of the complex. It will be called Emerald Center thus playing on the Oz theme so big in that adjacent other state. If approved by the council construction could begin as early as 2012. A cost of $600,000,000 is projected most of which will come from the snow removal budget.

Up Against The Wall Hyper

Into the realm of shameless self-promotion I venture. Selections from my work are now on display in the lobby area of the new offices of Sandweiss/Koster, Inc. S/K is an integrated marketing and advertising company that just moved into their new digs in the Hilltop at Briarcliff Building. Beautiful quarters with an incredible view of the downtown skyline. By the way the lobby is set up for a reception in these shots...
Many thanks to Kevin Koster for having impeccable taste in photography :) and the patience to put up with my lame attempts at print mounting.

Here's a link to their website:
