Goodfellow Federal Center

4300 Goodfellow Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63120

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

The buildings that now comprise the Goodfellow Federal Center were built in 1941 by the Department of Defense and were functioned as an Army ammunition plant to support World War II. During the war, about 16,000 employees worked at the complex manufacturing .30- and .50-caliber ammunition.

On July 1, 1966, the Army transferred ownership and operation complex to GSA, and GSA then renovated the campus into a suburban office park. The Goodfellow Federal Center is also potentially eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
