In 2005 Solutia shut down operations at the 38-acre Queeny Plant after operating as a chemical manufacturing facility for 104 years. Although situated on 38 acres in a desirable location less than a half mile from Downtown St. Louis, with river and rail access, the site has remained vacant, likely due to Solutia’s 100-year environmental legacy.
The National Geospatial Agency (NGA) has chosen to relocate from South St. Louis to approximately 100 acres of mixed-use residential, commercial, and industrial property in near north St. Louis City.

The City has engaged EOI to assist with this challenge.
