Repositioning a former hospital campus into a mixed-use facility reflects a 21st-century approach to maximizing human and financial capital.

Delmar Divine is a social innovation, high-impact real estate initiative that will set an example for community development, social improvement, and collaboration in St. Louis and the nation.

The former St. Luke’s Hospital, the second oldest general hospital in St. Louis, closed its doors to the public in 2013. Between 1904 and its closing in 2013, ten significant additions, wings, and even two more floors were added to its flagship structure, resulting in a sprawling complex covering over eight acres. Thanks to the visionaries—Maxine Clark, Founder, and CEO of Build-A-Bear-Workshop and Clayco—this historic building is transforming into an epicenter for social innovation to serve the St. Louis community. 

This adaptive reuse project is adding affordable housing for young professionals, retail, co-working space, and additional resources for nonprofits, foundations, and community support organizations with missions to improve the lives of children and families in the metropolitan St. Louis area.
