From Wikipedia:

The Kansas City Power and Light Building (also called the KCP&L Building and the Power and Light Building) is a landmark skyscraper located in Downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The building was constructed by Kansas City Power and Light in 1931, as a way to promote new jobs in Downtown Kansas City. Since then, the Art Deco structure has been a prominent part of the Kansas City skyline. The east side of the building faces the Power & Light District which bears its name, and the building’s iconic lantern appears on promotional materials and signage for the district.
