The Garvey Center Historic District on W. Douglas is representative of the private development that occurred concurrently with the City’s development of the Civic Center (Century II auditorium and new public library) following extensive land clearance in downtown Wichita through the urban renewal program in the 1950s-60s. The four-plus acre urban complex reflects the modern designs of Wichita architect Sid Platt (Platt and Associates) and his long term association with the Garvey family. Located in the heart of downtown, the Garvey Center remains a prominent part of the city’s skyline and stands as a physical legacy of the Garvey family and their commitment to the Wichita community. Developed during a six-year period from 1965-1971, the Center conveys the themes of midcentury redevelopment in downtown Wichita, modern office development in the city center, the Modern Movement in architecture with the period of significance spanning the development period. Comprised of five modern concrete and glass buildings connecting by an urban plaza, the Garvey Center provided Wichita’s first column-free speculative office buildings offering flexible rental space to prominent local commercial and industrial enterprises and a modern high-rise hotel in downtown Wichita. This modern complex is a unique grouping of modern architecture in Kansas and locally significant to the surrounding area.

Category: single dwelling

This house exhibits that transition with its Queen Anne form and classical details. A primary feature of the Guldner House is its one-story wrap-around porch supported by Ionic fluted square pillars. This property is the only documented Radford Company-designed residence in Kansas at this time.
