The Washington University School of Medicine Neuroscience Research building, located at 4370 Duncan Avenue, is a planned state-of-the-art, 609,000 square foot facility that represents a new center of gravity for the campus. This facility will enable the strategic alignment and co-location of the School of Medicine’s nationally-recognized program strengths in neuroscience, neurology, and psychiatry through research and its applications to education and clinical practice.

The scope of work includes a 1,846-car parking garage, which will assist in meeting the School of Medicine’s parking needs through 2026. A pedestrian connection (link) is being constructed from the existing link endpoint through the St. Louis Children’s Hospital garage to this new building. The baseline program will include approximately 900 employees and once the shell space is fully built out, will include approximately 1,350 employees.

Related street widening and traffic improvements have been made along Newstead Avenue and Duncan as part of a separate project.
