Well, this would have been amazing. I have never seen this or know what it was for, but someday downtown KC will get some really impressive or at least interesting new towers.

This reminded me that I downloaded this building as a replacement design for the convention hotel that is being built.

The lobby floor has some impressive height. The lobby bar will have a killer DT view.

The lobby height is HUGE.
You're right, the floor to ceiling view out those windows will be stunning.

The cladding looks somewhat beige, I thought the renderings looked more grey. Is this a pre-cast stone like the KCPA or metal panels like the Barnes ballroom?

Depends on the lighting. Beige can look a little more blue with a daytime color temp and will look more yellow at sunset as the sun skews towards yellow.

The panels look good in my opinion.
