The Epic Center

The Epic Center changed Wichita’s skyline – forever. This high-rise building is located in downtown Wichita. At 325 feet tall, it is the tallest building in the City of Wichita, and the state of Kansas. The building was constructed completely of concrete and was ribbed and strengthened with 1,900 tons of steel reinforcing bar. The building’s slanted roof was building represent a kite.

Did you know the original plan of Sidney “Sid” Smith Platt, the architect, called for two 24-story towers with a shopping center between them? The second tower and shopping center were never built.
