Cortex District - St. Louis, MO
Adaptive re-use of industrial building into a ship/tech company.


This area is at the heart of the Opportunity Corridor and is called out in the Brownfield Areawide Plan. The geography is four quadrants separated by the axis of E 79th Street and the corridor. Situated at the roadway's mid-point, the land in three of the four quadrants has the greatest potential for new development due to the amount of vacant land. Orlando Bakery is the anchor business that has completed a significant expansion, and has plans for continued growth.

The Core Jobs Zone is expected to be home for light manufacturing and distribution businesses that require entry-level to mid-level skill sets. These businesses will create opportunities for competitive jobs that can be absorbed by a local work force that has taken advantage of specialized training programs offered by Tri-C.

Buildings will be placed to front the corridor with a green buffer from the public right of way. Parking will be situated to the rear. This configuration will create an environment that reflects the urban context of a 21st century job center, unlike a suburban style campus.
