History

The Hobbs Building, a five-story red-brick structure, was built in 1905 by the prominent Kansas City architect John McKecknie. 

History

At the time, the West Bottoms was a thriving industrial and warehouse district, thanks to its proximity to both the Missouri River and the expansive railroads that crisscrossed the region. The Hobbs Building was specifically designed as a warehouse and distribution center, showcasing its utilitarian design and robust construction.
