The Master Plan will define a strategic mix of active uses and guide the density and scale of future development. Included in the 575 acre study area is the Danforth Plant Science Center and the Bio-Research and Development Growth (BRDG) Park, properties to the north and west, and the Monsanto Campus to the south.

 We are excited to embark on this master planning project to further cultivate innovation in Creve Coeur and the St. Louis region  Mayor Barry Glantz, City of Creve Coeur

A series of workshops were held in a collaborative effort between the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, the City of Creve Coeur, and key stakeholders. Workshops identified key issues, development goals and scenarios, design guidelines and a design framework to compose the final comprehensive plan. Focus groups encompassing key stakeholders were engaged throughout the planning process to shape a vision for the future at 39 North.
