ST. LOUIS (AP) - The owners of the Railway Exchange building in downtown St. Louis are teaming with architecture students at Washington University to explore new uses of the historic property.

The 100-year-old, 21-story high-rise was once the city’s tallest building. It has stood vacant since Macy’s left downtown St. Louis last year.

Graduate students at the university’s Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts are collaborating with the building’s owners and The Partnership for Downtown St. Louis on a project to develop potential new uses for the 1.2 million-square-foot structure.

A student-led design studio will share their ideas with the public at a Railway Exchange open house in December.
