East end transformation begins

A ceremonial groundbreaking was held May 5 to recognize the generous donors who made a major transformation of the east end of its Danforth Campus.

The east end transformation project will encompass 18 acres of the Danforth Campus, beginning at the foot of Brookings Hall and continuing east to Skinker Boulevard.

The university’s largest capital investment ever on the Danforth Campus, the project will include the addition of three new academic buildings to support the university’s core missions of teaching and research; an expansion of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum; two new multiuse facilities; an underground parking garage; and an expansive new park that better connects academic programs and provides a more inviting, relaxed gathering place for the university community and campus visitors.

The majority of the work is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
