A four-story corporate style building in landscaped grounds is the location for the Laumeier II business center. With its grey brick and reflective glass frontage, the building creates a ready-for-business first impression. It is positioned next to Laumeier Sculpture Park and numerous amenities near the I-44/I-270 interchange, providing ease of access to downtown St Louis, which is about 20 minutes away. Around nine Fortune 500 companies and many well-known corporations are based in the St Louis vicinity, including sectors such as finance, energy, insurance and defense. The economic area in this part of Missouri is strong and diversified. Around the building are several SMEs in sectors such as recruitment and law, as well as the headquarters of an international integrated logistics company. The workforce in St Louis County is well educated, and Concordia University, not far from the business center, provides a talent pool in business administration and management among other disciplines.
