Significance: Representing the city's expansion during the 1880s into a major business center, the New York Life Building is one of the most significant surviving structures in Kansas City. In 1890, the New York Life Building was the tallest and largest office building in the city and represented the first instance of an eastern company making a substantial investment in the city's development. The building is architecturally significant as a product of the important New York architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White.
