Parson & Associates has its offices in the Historic Lincoln Building at 18th and Vine in Kansas City, internationally recognized as one of the cradles of jazz. Along with New Orleans's Basin Street, Beale Street in Memphis, 52nd Street in New York City and Los Angeles's Central Avenue — the 18th and Vine area was a midwife to the birth of a new style of jazz.
Located just east of Downtown Kansas City, 18th and Vine is the Kansas City metropolitan area's historic center of African American culture. The Historic Lincoln Building historically served as a hub of professional and business activity in the Black community. The building was restored in the early 1980s by the Black Economic Union of Kansas City, and continues to serve this purpose today.
