“Downtown is the center of the St. Louis business community and that’s where we want to be,” said Vince Garozzo, president. “Over the past 10 years, we’ve been able to see an incredible momentum unfold downtown from our headquarters, first with the construction of the new Busch Stadium and now the building of Ballpark Village. We are very excited about downtown’s future.”
Greensfelder occupies more than 110,000 square feet on the six top floors of the 10 S. Broadway building and has a panoramic view of the ballpark and construction of Ballpark Village. In 2009, the firm’s name was placed atop the building in plain view of those watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball games, further amplifying its presence downtown.
“As one of the leading St. Louis business law firms, we are happy that Greensfelder is renewing its 118-year commitment to downtown St. Louis,” said St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay. “It speaks volumes to the strength of the city’s business community and its stature as a hub of commerce for the region.”
Greensfelder was founded in 1895 by Bernard Greensfelder and has been a fixture in downtown St. Louis ever since. The firm was initially located in the Commonwealth Trust Building at Broadway and Locust Street. It moved among several downtown buildings over the years before locating its headquarters at the Equitable Building in 1972 which was later renamed 10 S. Broadway.
Terms of the new lease were not disclosed, but Greensfelder plans to improve public spaces in its headquarters, including the lobby and conference rooms.
