Downtown St. Louis City to Get New Corporate Tower

Centene Corporation will build its new corporate headquarters at mixed-use Ballpark Village development in Downtown St. Louis City instead of Downtown Clayton, a suburb and the region's 'second downtown'

"Clayton's loss is downtown St. Louis' gain. Centene Corp., said today it is moving its headquarters from Clayton to Ballpark Village."

"The complex will be built in two phases and include office, retail and parking on two blocks at the corner of Broadway and Walnut Street.

Both blocks will see some development as part of phase one. The first block will have 700,000 square feet of office space."

"The second block will have 1,750 parking spaces and two more floors of retail. The square footage of retail on the second block, or the total number of stories in each buildings was also not released. The rest of the second block will be built in phase two and include up to 550,000 square feet of office space on an as-needed basis."

"'Centene will be the largest employer to move its corporate headquarters into the city in decades – maybe as long as 50 years,' said Mayor Francis Slay in a statement.

The move will help keep a major corporate headquarters within the metro area, bring jobs into the city and increase the momentum of downtown revitalization, Slay said."
