St. Louis Startups expand beyond T-REX (incubator space) Downtown


Pixel Press

The old Laclede Gas Building
Pixel Press might seem like all fun and games, but fun and games can be hard work! The startup arrived at T-REX in 2012 ready to work and play. “Beyond being startup budget friendly, having access to founders of other companies that were at similar stages meant getting advice was that much easier… the likelihood of talking through common issues with your peers when they are just next door,” says CEO Robin Rath. Pixel Press parted ways with the Railway Exchange Building at the same time T-REX did last January.
What they were looking for in a new space:
-A fun environment that would allow room to grow
-Extra space to have larger testing sessions from our players
-Stay downtown

Suburban to Urban Office Relocation: The Future in St. Louis?

While many companies have remained committed to Downtown, such as Stifel Nicolaus, Wells Fargo Advisors, etc, will we begin to see more relocation from the suburbs to the CBD, like Shipworks did a few years ago? This is clearly a trend in other cities.
A friend of mine recently left a large company in St. Charles because he no longer wanted to commute from the city all the way to the exurbs.  Perhaps companies like RGA, who's currently building a new campus in Chesterfield, will begin to consider building in the urban core of the city, where young people clearly want to work.
