The University will seek creative proposals from private developers for projects that
would benefit students, patients and other members of the SLU community, as well as
neighboring residents who live in the area.

institutional, recreational and transportation projects in the works, including the
new $550 million SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital under construction just
south of the property.
