In June, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City observed the 10th anniversary of its head office relocation from downtown to 1 Memorial Drive.

At the commemoration ceremony, Kansas City Fed President Esther George was joined by former Bank President Tom Hoenig, who led the organization through the construction and opening of the 600,000-square-foot facility.

“Building our new headquarters was a very involved project, and each decision we made throughout the process was carefully examined,” Hoenig told employees at the ceremony. “It is rewarding to see how those efforts have paid off.”

Since 2008, the headquarters workforce has nearly doubled to about 1,600.
