The Clayton Board of Alderman approved Centene’s plans for Subdistrict 2B of the Clayton Campus Development at the Board of Alderman discussion session Tuesday.
The multi-use civic auditorium is just one part of the corporation’s $770 million expansion. Construction on the first phase of the development began in February.
The auditorium will hold 1,000 seats and will act as a training center, as well as a community arts theatre.
Centene plans to relocate more than 1,000 St. Louis County employees to Clayton. It has received $75.6 million in tax abatements to help fund the first two phases of the expansion.
Subdistrict 2B is located on the southwest corner of Forsyth and Carondelet Plaza.
