Neighborhoods

Next NGA West will be located within a community of historic neighborhoods in the City of St. Louis.

Next NGA West construction site and surrounding neighborhoods

The Next NGA West site will be on 97 acres within the St. Louis Place neighborhood located at the intersection of N. Jefferson and Cass avenues. Bordering neighborhoods include Hyde Park, Jeff Vanderlou, Carr Square, and Old North St. Louis.

Culturally rich and diverse neighborhoods are a distinct part of the fabric of the City of St. Louis and longtime residents are proud of their roots and family history. Next NGA West is committed to preserving and enhancing the history of the area and is working to design the new campus in a way that will make it a good fit for the community. NGA has several ongoing outreach efforts to partner with local civic leaders, organizations, business owners and local schools to contribute to the long-term improvement and revitalization of these neighborhoods.
