The Bannister Federal Complex is a United States federal government complex located at 1500 E. Bannister Road in Kansas City, Missouri. The 310-acre (1.3 km2) complex consists of 10 buildings located at the corner of Troost Avenue and Bannister Road. The complex is occupied primarily by the General Services Administration and the Department of Energy. It is currently slated for closure by 2014.
The largest component, the Kansas City Plant, produces and assembles 85% of the non-nuclear components of the United States nuclear bomb arsenal. The GSA has announced plans to relocate the Kansas City Plant to land adjacent to the former Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base beginning in 2011.

Famous quotes containing the words complex and/or federal:
“By object is meant some element in the complex whole that is defined in abstraction from the whole of which it is a distinction.”
—John Dewey (18591952)
“[M]y conception of liberty does not permit an individual citizen or a group of citizens to commit acts of depredation against nature in such a way as to harm their neighbors and especially to harm the future generations of Americans. If many years ago we had had the necessary knowledge, and especially the necessary willingness on the part of the Federal Government, we would have saved a sum, a sum of money which has cost the taxpayers of America two billion dollars.”
—Franklin D. Roosevelt (18821945)
