The Helix Center is near the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, which is the largest independent plant science research institute in the world. It is also located within blocks of the BioResearch & Development Growth (BRDG) Park, which serves emerging, post-incubator companies, and Monsanto’s international headquarters. Collectively, these facilities anchor a dynamic intersection of research, innovation and commerce and are the cornerstone of the 39 North development.

Locating inside the Helix Center means doing business alongside other bioscience and technology entrepreneurs within a world-renowned cluster of bioscience and technology research institutions. As a result, making the move to the Helix Center gives companies every advantage.

The Helix Center is nestled in Creve Coeur, a centrally located suburban community within minutes of major highways, St. Louis Lambert International Airport, outstanding research universities and major business centers.
