Western Auto Building

A Slice of the Pie or An Urban Myth

Save to my Account

Built in 1915, the pie-shaped Western Auto building is one of the many interesting structures in the Kansas City skyline. It was originally built as a headquarter for Coca-Cola, but was bought by Western Auto in the 1920s.

The myth is that architect Arthur Tufts designed two identical buildings in other cities and positioned them geographically to form a complete pie.

The building is 12 stories tall, is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings, and is now filled with residential lofts.

Located near Crown Center and Union Station.
