At its heart is Kansas City Live! with two floors of bars and restaurants, and a covered outdoor plaza which hosts gigs and events. Completed in 2008, the P&L development also is the home of a brewery, as well as hotel and corporation head quarters. On the eastern edge is the Sprint Center, a 20,000 capacity indoor sports and music venue.
