Project description: Missouri State University’s Glass Hall expansion creates a simulation of the New York Stock Exchange floor for students in the College of Business, as well as work rooms, an advising center and career center. On top of the 40,000-square-foot addition to the east, the project renovates existing public spaces. With construction well underway last year, the project was threatened to lose $1.9 million of $5 million pledged by the state, but then-Gov. Jay Nixon released funds he originally identified as withholdings, according to Springfield Business Journal archives. University President Clif Smart has said the work is funded by revenue bonds, gifts to the MSU Foundation, school reserves and capital appropriations.
