Regional Office Building

Two Pershing Square, located at 2300 Main Street in Kansas City, Mo., is the home of the GSA Heartland Region (Region 6). The Heartland Region office, first occupied in 2014, demonstrates the principles of GSA's Total Workplace initiative. There is more square footage devoted to collaboration, such as meeting areas and conference rooms , and less square footage devoted 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.
