The Power & Light District is a vibrant, new nine-block neighborhood in downtown Kansas City that links together the Kansas City Convention Center to the west and the new Sprint Center arena to the east. Sixteen establishments are currently open, and the $850 million district will offer more than 40 dining and entertainment venues when it's completed later in 2008. The District features vibrant lighting and landscaping, outdoor seating for restaurants, nightlife and a permanent, covered performance stage for live entertainment. The new district anchors $3.5 billion of complimentary development in downtown Kansas City, such as the new H&R Block world headquarters, which features a 300-seat theater for the Kansas City Repertory Theatre.
