Concordia Seminary and Washington University Announce Sale of Former CBC High School Property

The former Christian Brothers College (CBC) High School property in the 6500 block of Clayton Road in Clayton has been sold to Washington University in St. Louis, it was announced today in a joint statement by Concordia Seminary and the University. Concordia purchased the property in 2001 when the high school moved to its new location in Town & Country, Mo.

The sale was finalized today following approval by the executive committee of Washington University’s Board of Trustees, Concordia Seminary’s Board of Regents, and the Board for Pastoral Education and Board of Directors of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

The 8.2-acre site contains eight buildings, providing 169,000 square feet of interior space. The facilities include classrooms, offices, a theater and library complex, a gymnasium and sports annex, and a cafeteria. The grounds include an athletic field, a track, tennis courts and a 150-space parking lot.

The University has not announced any long-range plans for the property, which is in easy walking and shuttle distance from the University’s Danforth Campus, but stated that it will soon begin work on renovating and improving the gymnasium and athletic fields for the use of intramural and club sports.
