The Art Institute of St. Louis will open July 9 as part of the Streets of St. Charles Project, a $385 million mixed-use development that included 1.5 million square feet of retail, dining, and entertainment and residential space. The school will occupy approximately 33,800 square feet of the new center. Brinkmann Constructors is the contractor for the project, and Cullinan Properties is the property manager. The Art Institute is part of Pittsburgh-based Education Management Corp., one of the largest providers of private, post-secondary education in North America.
