Mayor Lyda Krewson announced Tuesday (6/23/2020) that the United States General Services Administration (GSA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will relocate more than 1,000 employees to Downtown St. Louis.

“This is a great day for our City. We are so thrilled to welcome the USDA and its employees to Downtown St. Louis, which is the economic engine for the entire region and a vibrant, centrally located hub for countless tourist attractions and cultural institutions. My thanks to all our federal, state, and local partners for their hard work advocating to keep the USDA where it belongs in the City of St. Louis,” said Mayor Lyda Krewson.

One Metropolitan Square at 211 N. Broadway, a prime location in the City’s Central Business District, is where the USDA employees will be relocating. The total contract value is more than $72 million. The decision to move to this location is expected to make a large economic impact on Downtown St. Louis.
