Missouri’s new agtech innovation community 39 North is taking root in St. Louis.
The district covers nearly 600 acres in Missouri and includes many of the region’s top agtech companies including the Danforth Plant Science Center, Bio-Research & Development Growth (BRDG) Park and the Helix Center Biotech Incubator. 39 North is geared toward providing the lifestyle often sought by today’s highly skilled scientific workers, with a mix of retail, residential and office space connected by walking and biking trails.
“39 North is an extension of Dr. Danforth’s vision to make St. Louis a world center for plant science and innovation,” said Sam Fiorello, COO, Danforth Center and President of BRDG Park. “By connecting regional assets, improving mobility, creating additional green space and development opportunities, we will enhance our ability to grow, attract, and retain ag-centric companies and top scientific talent.
