Crown Center, Kansas City

Constructed in the early 1970s, this complex was built by the Hallmark Company as an experimental "city within a city" outside the core of downtown. It consists of offices, condos, and apartments, but the most prominent pieces are the hotel and mall, the former of which is embedded into "signboard hill" a rugged hill that was once cluttered with signage, hence the name. The exposed rock of the hill has been left intact and forms a waterfall within the hotel's atrium.













Enough highrises have been constructed in the area that it has begun to have its own skyline.
