Answer

Community Christian Church 
Built in 1940. Located at 4601 Main. Construction was not supervised by Wright, and major changes were made to his design.


Private home built for Clarence Sondern
 
Built in 1940. Located at 3600 Belleview Ave. Called "unison" design by Wright. He designed an addition to the home in 1950.


Private home built for Frank Bott
 
Built between 1959-63. Located at 3540 Briarclift Road. One of the last houses designed by Wright. He said a building should not be built on the side of a hill -- rather it should be on top of the hill, as this one is.



More information about the houses can be found in a Kansas City Star article:
Uhlenhuth, Karen. "Wright & Wrong: Frank Lloyd was the Wright, KC, he thought was the wrong; the buildings stand." Kansas City Star, April 13, 1992
