Goodfellow Federal Center

4300 Goodfellow Boulevard
St. Louis, Missouri 63120

The Goodfellow Federal Center is a suburban office park situated on a 62.5 acre, 23 building campus in St. Louis.

The buildings that now comprise the Federal Center were built in 1941 by the Department of Defense and were utilized as an Army Small Arms Munitions Plant to support the World War II effort. During the war, approximately 16,000 employees worked at the complex manufacturing .30 and .50 caliber ammunition.

On July 1, 1966, the ownership and operation of the 62.5 acre complex was transferred from the Army to GSA. After this time, GSA renovated the complex into a suburban office park. The Federal Center is also potentially eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Environmental Conditions

GSA, tenant agencies, and other regulatory entities are currently conducting extensive research to better characterize environmental conditions at the Federal Center. Controlled access to certain basement, mechanical and other non-tenant areas has been ordered by building managers after recent sampling indicated varying amounts of asbestos, lead paint, and other organic chemicals.

GSA takes potential environmental risks very seriously. Out of an abundance of caution, GSA has requested assistance from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to oversee additional research at the facility.

Safety data fact sheets [ZIP - 12 MB] , environmental reports, and other records from 2002-2016 are now posted in an online Federal Center Reading Room. These documents are also available to view in person from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Building 107.

Questions and comments regarding ongoing environmental evaluation efforts may be directed to GSA's Region 6 Environmental Team by email at Members of the news media may contact the Region 6 Public Affairs Officer for more information.
