ST. LOUIS, Oct. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --A Ameren Missouri announced plans today to construct a new $20.7 million operating center for its electric operations serving North St. Louis and surrounding communities.The North Metro Operating Center will be located at 4427 Geraldine Avenue and replace the adjacent Geraldine Operating Center, which has employed hundreds of Ameren Missouri workers and served the North City community for over 60 years.Construction of the new facility requires a workforce of approximately 500 workers and 20 diverse suppliers to complete, including Ameren Missouri employees, local union contractors and subcontractors. The new facility is expected to be completed by December 2020 and will accommodate close to 70 employees.The location of the new operating center is already being prepared for the start of construction, which was preceded by months of demolition of an existing warehouse and excavation of terrain.
