This Former Kansas City Club building is located in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.  The 15-story clubhouse includes a large dining room, several bars, private meeting rooms, a banquet hall, kitchens to service the dining facilities, athletic facilities, an indoor pool, six floors of guestrooms, and a rooftop terrace. The building also includes a basement level bowling alley.  The building’s main event space is located on the 15th floor.

The renovation project converted the existing upper R-2 residential apartment floors (7-14) to R-1 hotel.  The first floor will continue to serve as the main entry lobby to the building.  The 6th floor was converted to hotel use.  Floors 1 through 5 will have minimal changes – especially in the historic event spaces.  The basement levels will be changed from mechanical and back of house spaces to hotel support and hotel amenity space.


Mechanical system upgrades. U.S. Engineering installed a Variable Refrigerant Flow System direct expansion (DX) variable refrigerant volume (VRV) split systems consisting of 180-tons of air-cooled heat recovery outdoor units. The variable refrigerant volume system can modulate from 100% to approximately 14% of design capacity.  The system exceeds the performance requirements of the standard ASHRAE 90.1 baseline system, resulting in reduced energy consumption and site / source carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions.
