Scottrade Expands in Maryville Centre, of All Places
According to Joe Whittington of the Post-Dispatch, Scottrade is acquiring two buildings and two parcels of land in the Maryville Centre area, which will be the new home to the firm’s IT staff.

If they were going to establish a secondary campus, Scottrade could have established its IT hub downtown instead, taking advantage of downtown’s excellent infrastructure for such uses, and saved a good deal of money in the process.
