Awards & Recognition
December 12, 2013

The American Institute of Architects’ Kansas City chapter has presented national law firm Polsinelli and its headquarters developer, VanTrust Real Estate, with the 2013 Architectural Advocate of the Year Award for “outstanding support of excellence in architecture and design.”

The nine-story, 235,000-square-foot Plaza Vista accommodates 450 total employees, including more than 250 attorneys, and is the keystone to a world-class office, retail and hospitality complex credited with returning vitality and economic energy to one of KC’s most important neighborhoods. Plaza Vista also is currently pursuing a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

As part of the expansion, Polsinelli also opened a nearby 35,000-square-foot National Service Center to accommodate marketing, IT and administrative functions serving Kansas City and the firm’s 16 other offices across the country.

The opening of Polsinelli’s headquarters has come during an exciting period of growth that has seen the firm’s national footprint expand to 10 states and 17 cities. Polsinelli was recently recognized by The American Lawyer as the fastest-growing law firm in America over the past five years, and the firm moved to 69th position in The National Law Journal’s ranking of the largest U.S.-based law firms.
