BOK Financial Breaks Ground on new banking and office space at 17th and Grand in Kansas City
BOK Financial will celebrate its ground breaking on a new full-service banking center and office space on October 21, 2022. The project located at 17th and Grand Boulevard in Kansas City, MO, brings new purpose to the former ‘old Kansas City Star Building.’ BNIM has collaborated with project team members McCownGordon, Henderson Engineers, SK Design Group, and Wallace Design Collective, to design and construct BOK Financial's future space. The facility features a welcoming lobby, full-service banking center, offices for BOK Financial's Corporate Trust division, as well as a banking drive-thru and walk-up ATM to enable street-level activation. A flexible break room, a large, daylight-filled presentation room, and outdoor patio with views of downtown Kansas City are located on the facility's second level. The design aims to establish an indoor-outdoor connection, inviting nature into the building through an emphasis on views, generous daylight, and native landscaping.
