Kansas City, MO --- June 25, 2019 --- RSM US LLP (RSM) will be relocating their Kansas City, Missouri office in July 2020 to 46 Penn Centre, a Class-A, 14-story, 214,000 square foot office building with secure structured parking being developed by Block Real Estate Services, LLC (BRES) on the Country Club Plaza. RSM, a leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market both here and worldwide, has been located on the Country Club Plaza since 2000 and will continue to show their commitment to the Kansas City market with their move in July 2020.
“We are very excited about moving into our new office space on the Plaza next year and to continue to grow our presence here in Kansas City,” said Ed Bartak, Kansas City office managing partner. “This new space will be a unique working environment for our current team, a space we can continue to engage the greater Kansas City community as well as provide the much needed space for continued growth. It’s important to us at RSM to create an engaging and positive environment for our caring, courageous and collaborative team members to deliver the Power of Being Understood to the market.”
To accommodate the exciting growth RSM has experienced, they will occupy the entire 9th floor, consisting of 25,800 square feet, and half of the 10th floor, both of which will provide excellent views of the Country Club Plaza. Deciding to move to the under construction Class-A office building allows RSM to utilize new technology capabilities, specifically for their global and consulting teams who operate out of the Kansas City office. RSM currently has 220 employees and is looking to grow to 400 employees in the next few years which was a main factor in moving to 46 Penn Centre.
“We are excited to welcome RSM to 46 Penn Centre where they will join CrossFirst next summer,” Kenneth G. Block, Managing Principal of BRES. “46 Penn Centre will also be the new home for BRES and as such we look forward to sharing it with a company as dedicated to the Kansas City market as RSM has proven to be.”
46 Penn Centre will offer state-of-the-art, world class amenities including a sit-down restaurant accessible from the spacious two-story main entrance lobby complete with an out-door terrace. All floors will have access to private tenant balconies. RSM will have access to one on each of their floors for their employees to enjoy the views of the Country Club Plaza. The Class-A office building has been carefully planned and designed to achieve LEED standards. Other notable building amenities include: a rooftop terrace, fitness center, car care center, dry cleaning service, and shoe shine service. Other amenities are being considered, such as a conference center and a breakfast/lunch spot.
46 Penn Centre is the first office building to be built on the Country Club Plaza since the Plaza Vista building opened in 2013. Opportunities are still available to occupy the state-of-the-art building, please contact BRES at 816.756.1400 for all leasing inquiries.
