Myrtle E. and Earl E. Walker Hall
When Myrtle E. and Earl E. Walker Hall opens in spring 2015, the 90,000-square-foot building will double the space Maryville has for programs in the School of Health Professions.
Maryville University Breaks Ground for Myrtle E. and Earl E. Walker Hall
ST. LOUIS, (, September 29, 2013 - The Myrtle E. and Earl E. Walker Hall will soon be the new home for Maryville's School of Health Professions.

A generous gift from St. Louis philanthropists Myrtle E. and the late Earl E. Walker paved the way for the $20 million building that will include state-of-the-art facilities for the Walker Scottish Rite Clinic for Childhood Language Disorders, classrooms, meeting spaces, laboratories, offices and a planned speech clinic for adults.

"We are very appreciative to Myrtle and Earl Walker and the entire Walker family for the vision and generosity that made this possible," said Maryville University President Mark Lombardi. "Maryville's culture of excellence will be reflected in the building and all of the opportunities it will provide to our students as they prepare to meet the evolving health care needs of our community and our nation."

Chuck Gulas, dean of Maryville's School of Health Professions, said the new facility is key to providing students with access to best practices in the rapidly changing field of health care. "Walker Hall, a state-of-the-art building, will enable us to fulfill our mission to educate competent, caring and compassionate practitioners, the next generation of health care professionals," he said. "For the first time we will have the opportunity for our students to observe and provide services through the Walker Scottish Rite clinic and the Center of Community Outreach."

Sheri Mistretta, executive director of the Walker Scottish Rite Clinic for Childhood Language Disorders clinic said, "The Walker Scottish Rite Clinic is so very appreciative to Myrtle and Earl Walker for their gift and to Maryville University for creating this vision of dynamic collaboration between health care services and education. Walker Hall will bring together, under one roof, health care professionals, students and families, working toward common goals of life-altering care."

When it opens in spring 2015, the 90,000-square-foot building will double the space Maryville has for programs in the School of Health Professions. It will be located on the east of the campus quad on the site formerly occupied by Duchesne Hall. (Maryville tore down Duchesne, a 50-year-old residence hall, this summer to make way for the new building.)

Walker Hall will be Maryville's first LEED silver certified building and general contractor Paric construction of St. Louis is working closely with the University to incorporate a variety of sustainable practices in the demolition and construction process including recycling materials from Duchesne and incorporating solar energy panels into the new building's design.

Major Construction Project for VA St. Louis Health Care System Moves Forward at Jefferson Barracks
ST. LOUIS, (, September 29, 2013 - The VA St. Louis Health Care System is moving forward on a multi-year, multi-million dollar construction project at their Jefferson Barracks Division.

It will also demolish 14 buildings and hand the land over to the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery for their expansion needs. The planning for this expansion has been ongoing for several years but the benefactors of this project will be the Veterans of St. Louis for years to come.

KP Development Developing Master Plan for Former Chrysler Plant
ST. LOUIS, (, September 29, 2013 - KP Development, a St. Louis-based build-to-suit developer, said it has the former Chrysler assembly plant in Fenton, Mo., under contract and will be developing a master plan for the redevelopment of the 294-acre site.

KP Development, formerly Koman Properties, focuses on development, construction and project management for single tenant projects, specializing in industrial and office projects across the country.

"This recognizable site is a prime location for new industrial and office jobs, which will be our major focus. KP Development will devote the time, energy and capital needed to breathe new life into the property, which at one time was home to almost 7,000 jobs," stated Terry Barnes, president of KP Development.

"We are excited for the challenge and the opportunity, and fully recognize that developing a formidable economic team will be a vital component to the ultimate success of the former Chrysler site's transformation. We look forward to having the City of Fenton, St. Louis County and the State of Missouri as part of that team."

Local, state and federal officials have been trying to attract a buyer for the plant site since Chrysler ceased operations there in 2009. Bordered by I-44 and strategically situated near the I-44 and I-270 interchange, while also featuring rail access, the site provides a convenient, easy-to-access Midwest location that has exceptional potential for industrial development.

"We are excited about the potential redevelopment of the former Chrysler facility. The loss of Chrysler left a huge void in our community. The City of Fenton looks forward to working with KP Development, St. Louis County and the State of Missouri in bringing this strategically important piece of our city back to life," said Mike Polizzi, Mayor of Fenton.
