In the spring of 2017, Saint Louis University and SSM Health embarked on a significant effort to help promote and guide the further redevelopment of Midtown. Distanced by only half-a-mile, the geography between Saint Louis University’s north and south campuses is burgeoning with exciting developments.
In addition to SLU opening two new SLU residence halls and the construction of the new SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital and outpatient care center, the area will soon be home to the City Foundry STL, the restored Armory District and a new Element by Westin Hotel.
Now this new mixed-use district bounded by Laclede Avenue to the north, Chouteau Avenue to the south, Grand Boulevard to the east, and Vandeventer and Spring avenues to the west (see a map) needs a name.
Finalist names were presented to the community and open to a vote, which concluded March 12. An announcement of the results will be made soon.
SLU President Fred Pestello, Ph.D., and Candace Jennings, Regional President of SSM Health in St. Louis, take you on a tour of the redevelopment district that you can help to name.
Thank you for being a part of the rejuvenation of the Midtown area and helping us celebrate this exciting time in Saint Louis University and SSM Health’s history.
