Beneath the streets of Kansas City lies a hidden metropolis – a SubTropolis if you will. Alright, I didn’t come up with that name, that is actually what the underground facility is called.
The SubTropolis business complex originally opened back in 1964. It’s built inside of an excavated mine below Kansas City. It’s about the size of 140 football fields. The facility attracts tenants with low energy costs and cheap rent. The SubTropolis was carved out of 270 million year old Limestone. One of the rental spaces serves as an underground archive that is home to the original film reels for Gone with the Wind and Wizard of Oz.
