FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 10, 2007

City Hall north entrance open

Renovations are complete and the north entrance of the City of Kansas City, Mo., City Hall, located on 11th Street between Oak and Locust streets, is now open.

The $4.5 million project includes fire-rated enclosed stair towers from the second floor to street level for safe passage during an emergency. Sprinkler systems also have been built into new and existing vestibules and the elevator lobby. Security has been enhanced with the construction of an extended entry vestibule, which has a new security-control checkpoint. Large-diameter revolving doors have been installed in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Additional interior work includes plaster, marble and stone replacement, new flooring, new air handlers, including required ductwork and installation of a new generator.

Work on the exterior of the building includes the new north plaza and associated landscaping, curbs, gutters, areaways and sidewalks, pavers and site walls constructed to match the durability of materials used in 1937. Work crews also added new top soil in planting beds and lawn areas, plant material and an irrigation system.

The new entrance will be formally dedicated during a ceremony celebrating City Hall’s 70th anniversary next month.

Media inquiries about this issue should be directed to Deanna Richards, communications specialist, Capital Improvements Management Office, (816) 513-2757.
