Tarlton will complete the core and shell of the new 4260 Forest Park building at Cortex this summer, but developer Wexford Science & Technology isn’t going to rest.
Jerry Crylen, senior director at Wexford Science & Technology, told AGC members last week that even as tenant finish work gets underway on the three-story, $24 million building, Wexford Science & Technology is moving ahead with a $165 million project on Duncan Avenue across from the iconic 4240 building.
The new project is a mixed-use development with three building types and a parking garage: a hotel, a 250-unit apartment building, and 40,000-square-feet of retail.
A representative of Wexford Science & Technology stated in an email that the company has not set a date for breaking ground.
That project is part of the $350 million in construction that Wexford Science & Technology as planned for the Cortex district in the next five years. Also in that plan is another office-lab building on Duncan Avenue, this one a five-story, $45 million building.
Also on the horizon is the groundbreaking for the new Cortex MetroLink Station, slated for the first quarter of 2018.
Wexford Science & Technology is looking ahead at the Danforth Plant Science Center’s BRDG Park in Creve Coeur, too. The company is working with the Danforth Center to develop a master plan to redevelop a 200-acre area north of the existing BRDG Park.
Editor’s Note: A previous version of this article stated that ground would be broken this year.
