Regional Office Building

Two Pershing Square, located at 2300 Main Street in Kansas City, Missouri, is the home of GSA's Heartland Region (Region 6). First occupied in 2014, the Heartland Region's headquarters demonstrates the principles of GSA's Total Workplace initiative. More square footage is allocated for collaboration, such as meeting areas and conference rooms, than square footage allocated to personal space. Workstation panels are lower and there is greater access to day lighting and views for associates. There are also fewer walls, and most walls are situated in the interior of the space.
