Barnes-Jewish North Expansion (12-story tower)





BJC Healthcare is building a $75 million, 12-story tower for outpatient clinics, doctors' offices and its corporate headquarters at the Washington University Medical Center.

Rising at the northwest corner of Forest Park and South Euclid avenues, the tower will extend north and the tower's completion is expected in early 2012.

Consolidation of clinics, doctors' offices and executive offices in the new 300,000-square-foot tower will expand BJC's high-rise medical complex to the north side of Forest Park Avenue. It will go up just east of the parking garage built in 1994 and will be connected by an elevated walkway to the Barnes-Jewish Hospital complex.

Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis College of Pharmacy expansions have produced a high-rise complex with a daytime population of more than 25,000 employees and patients.

St. Louis Art Museum Expanding

The $131-million expansion, designed by London-based David Chipperfield, will add more than 200,000 sq ft of space to the existing museum including, greatly enhanced galleries and public space, a 300-car below grade parking garage, and a new fully accessible entrance on Fine Arts Drive. To be located to the east and south of the original museum building, the addition will be finished in dark polished concrete and have skylights and floor to ceiling windows.

As part of the project, Chipperfield will also rework the original museum building. Designed by Cass Gilbert as a temporary pavilion for the 1904 World’s Fair, it is need of a substantive overhaul to properly function as a 21st Century art museum.

$4-billion Wood River Refinery Expansion



ConocoPhillips and EnCana Corp currently have underway a $4-billion expansion and retooling of its St. Louis (Wood River, Illinois) refinery. It is the largest expansion project in the company's history.

The project is expected to have an impact on 300,000 residents; generate approximately $325 million in local income and $48 million in annual ongoing income; create close to 4,000 jobs during the construction phase and 500 long-term jobs; and generate $14 million in local and state revenue during construction and $19 million each year once the expansion is complete.

The expansion will give the refinery the capacity to process heavy Canadian crude oil. The Wood River refinery is the 10th largest in North America.

Aviator Business Park

Another $250-million distribution center for St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Its development might aid St. Louis in landing the Midwest China Hub.




Old Ford Motors plant site cleared in suburban Hazelwood, near Lambert International Airport

Aviator Business Park is on track to becoming a reality – After completing demolition of the old Ford plant in 16 months, Panattoni Development Co. crews are busy prepping this 160-acre site for a $250 million dollar project. Aviator Business Park is a Class A industrial, office and retail development situated on 160 acres just minutes from St. Louis-Lambert International Airport. It will be a 2.7 million square-foot, mixed-use business park for light manufacturers, data centers, distribution operators, hotels and office users.

With utmost respect for the environment, Panattoni has taken a “green” friendly approach to Aviator’s development, with LEED certification available and 97% of all materials on site being recycled. The site is rail-served by Norfolk Southern and is located within the Missouri Enhanced Enterprise Zone, meaning income tax credits are also available for companies investing in the site.



Hub for China?: The 160-acre (65-hectare) Aviator Business Park (above) is expected to join two other Hazelwood, Mo., industrial parks in the newly expanded Foreign Trade Zone around Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. In addition to helping business development efforts related to trade with Latin America, the growing FTZ is an opportunity for new ties with Chinese companies and freight. “Through comprehensive studies and assessments, we have found that making St. Louis a Midwest cargo hub to China would present significant advantages to many shippers who are now using Chicago’s O'Hara and other airports,” said Mike Jones, chairman of the area’s recently formed China Hub Commission. “In addition, the commercial hub will help expand markets for Midwest products and open up new opportunities for Missouri workers.”

Upscale retailers bouncing back in St. Louis

Two upscale department stores - delayed one year due to the recession - are now under construction in metro St. Louis.

The Nordstrom at the Saint Louis Galleria is slated to open Sept. 23, 2011, after a yearlong delay due to the weakened economy and a drop-off in consumer spending. The store is going to be 140,000 square feet and will be metro St. Louis' second Nordstrom.

A two-story, 124,000-square-foot, designed for The Meadows, will be Von Maur's 25th overall and first in Missouri. The retailer projects that the store will employ approximately 225 people when it opens in September 2010.
