Esri, a specialist in spatial analytics, recently opened a new office in addition to its existing presence in St. Charles, Mo. The expanded presence is situated in the Cortex neighborhood, a 200-acre innovation hub and technology district integrated into St. Louis’ historic Central West End.
The neighborhood is near one of Esri’s biggest federal customers, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, which will be building a new government complex, called Next NGA West.
“The expansion of our St. Louis area presence into the Cortex neighborhood is an exciting development,” said Patty Mims, director, National Government at Esri. “Not only is Esri proud to be a part of a burgeoning tech hub, but we are also looking forward to the opportunity to better serve customers like the NGA who are continuing to make St. Louis their home.”
New amenities in the Cortex neighborhood will include access to Innovation Hall, a 300-person event location, which features drop-in workspaces and a restaurant featuring gourmet, locally-inspired cuisine.
The new St. Louis location in the Cortex will serve the unique set of GIS users who work and live in the area, in particular the growing needs of federal defense, intelligence, and agricultural customers as well as local government in the region.
