The UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI-ST. LOUIS will move the studios of its noncommercial KWMU/ST. LOUIS to the MIDTOWN GRAND CENTER arts and entertainment district, reports the ST. LOUIS BUSINESS JOURNAL. The new three-story, 27,000-square-foot building on Olive Street will house KWMU and academic programs and will be built on land donated by GRAND CENTER, INC. next door to PBS affiliate KETC-TV.
The school has raised almost $4.5 million in gifts and will add $2.5 million in institutional funds to pay in part for the $12 million structure.
