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. That spring and summer, SLPS held open houses for the public to tour the closed schools. During the winter months that followed, SLPS held a series of community forums to discuss possible repurposing scenarios for each property.
Each closed school was also visited by members of a technical advisory committee (TAC) put together by SLPS. The TAC includes architects, building planners, preservationists, real estate developers and representatives from the fields of finance, education, construction and healthcare. By bringing together community stakeholders, SLPS hopes to find creative solutions for these properties that will benefit the District and the St. Louis community as a whole.
