Favorite thing: Downtown Kansas City - inside the freeway loop - has a mix of 1930s art deco buildings and modern office towers from the 1970s and 80s. And maybe there will be another spurt of building sometime soon. New plans are afoot to relocate the world headquarters of H & R Block inside the freeway loop as the anchor of a major redevelopment project. The Transamerica Tower - originally built for AT&T) is my favorite of the newer tall buildings downtown.
