In 1996 Marriott Hotels bought the Muehlebach and made it into an extension of the Kansas City Marriott Downtown. O’Rourke Wrecking Company imploded the 1952 Muehlebach Tower annex building and in 1998, built a new, modern Muehlebach tower to meet current building code standards.
A sky bridge was also built to connect both hotel buildings on their second floors. The original 1915 Muehlebach building’s lobby and ballrooms were restored and are now used as banquet and convention facilities.
AOG provided geotechnical engineering services, as well as construction-phase special inspection and construction material testing services for the new tower. We worked closely with general contractors, J.E. Dunn, and the project structural engineers, Page McNaghten & Associates.
