The $44 million, 15-month renovation of 4340 Duncan, located in the Cortex Innovation District, is nearly complete. The project demonstrates the connection, collaboration and community partnership taking place around innovation and entrepreneurship in the St. Louis region.

Washington University in St. Louis worked with several key regional stakeholders to transform the historic building into an important and strategic component of the Cortex Innovation Community. 4340 Duncan includes 80,000 rentable square feet of state-of-the-art office, laboratory and modular space, providing St. Louis startups with affordable, functional quarters in which to grow and thrive.
