Construction Underway at College

A major construction project is underway that will transform the look of one of St. Louis’ oldest colleges. Very soon, a six-story academic building will rise on the campus of St. Louis College of Pharmacy.

Phase I, the new academic and research building and library, is being built on the east side of campus along Taylor Avenue. There will be 213,000 square feet of floor space, which will include a large auditorium, several large classrooms, smaller classrooms, study areas, and 30,000 square feet of research space. The library will more than triple in size, and there will also be a welcome center for prospective students and their families.

The building set to open in July 2015. The project is being financed with the support of donors, including alumni and friends of the College.

The College chose Cannon Design as its architectural firm for Phase I. St. Louis-based Paric Corporation will manage construction.
