Welcome to the BRC

  • The Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS) Building Revitalization Collaborative was established in 2015 to promote the redevelopment of District-owned properties no longer in use as schools.

    In the spring and summer of 2015, SLPS held a series of public open houses at the closed schools and is in the process of hosting community forums to discuss possible repurposing scenarios for each property. 

    TAC members include architects, building planners, preservationists, real estate developers, and representatives from the fields of finance, education, construction and healthcare.

    By bringing together community stakeholders and a technical advisory committee (TAC) comprised of a variety of experts, SLPS hopes to find creative solutions for these properties that will benefit the District and the St. Louis community as a whole.
