The Graphic Arts Building, after an approval in 2005 for the redevelopment, currently houses the Graphic Arts Lofts (formerly Park University). It is an eight story, 58 unit, reinforced concrete building in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.

The building was built in 1915 as a headquarters for commercial printing and related trades.

The building's architect, Samuel B. Tarbet, also built other local commercial buildings such as the Wheeling Corrugating CompanyBuilding, the Goodenow Textiles Company Building, Kansas City Athenaeum, J. D. Bowerstock Theater (now known as Liberty Hall), and Olathe City Hall. Additionally he built residences for H. F. Hill, C.F. Myers, and Dr. Guffey.

The first floor houses the leasing office for Old Town Lofts buildings.

In 2005 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. [ [ - Retrieved May 4, 2008] ]
