St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association
St. Louis, Mo.
www.stlrcga.org

The St. Louis Cardinals may have won Major League Baseball's World Series in October 2006, but the Gateway to the West also made headlines in 2006 by placing seventh in jobs and seventh in capital investment from its corporate facility projects. The real estate deals netted the 16- county, bi- state region 4,790 jobs and $2.4 billion.

By 2008, an estimated $4 billion will have been spent on projects in downtown St. Louis alone. In the city and around it, major life science investments continue to dominate the news.

On Dec. 15, Biovest announced it would hire 40 workers, including scientists, who will manufacture $25 million in medical devices per year at a future plant on The Hill. And just one month earlier, the Genome sequencing Center at Washington University announced it had won a $156- million grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute to find genes involved in cancer and other diseases.

This would have been important to add, and then leaving the link for the explanation of why each is on the list:

"Criteria used in the ranking include total capital investment; investment per capita; total jobs created; jobs created per capita; the contributions of the local or regional economic development organization toward the attainment of these numbers; overall economic vitality; depth and breadth of economic strength; diversity of industry; ability to generate breakthrough deals; and the ability to provide verifiable documentation for all projects"

All of that information is in the link provided, which is why I provided the link as a source. Site Selection rarely makes such lists/criteria unavailable for readers.
