IT Firm Contegix Expanding Downtown


Following what seems to be a trend among downtown IT firms, Contegix is planning to double its staff from 20 to 40 by the end of the year.  The company is also on the lookout for potential acquisitions, so perhaps its presence downtown will continue to grow in the near future.

Contegix is based in the Bandwidth Exchange Building at 900 Walnut, which is fully leased.  In addition to Contegix, the list of tenants at the Bandwidth Exhchange Building includes Connectria, Xiolink, Broadwing Communications, Chase Paymentceh, Level 3 Communications and McLeod USA, among others.

The IT sector has been a real bright spot for downtown as of late, with Digital Realty Trust making a significant investment in its data center space at 210 North Tucker, Xiolink building a new data center and expanding to 150 employees at 1111 Olive, and Datotel consolidating its 36 employees in the Globe Building.

Who will be the next firm to join the party?

Hey, maybe Centene data center? Unless I missed out on the fact that O'Fallen handed them a tax deal on a sivler platter already. It would certainly help Centene's image after the black eye's - first trying to blight property to get it on the cheap in Clayton and then using BPV/St. Louis City to get the property on the cheap anyways. Then again, maybe it would be better if they find some other suckers.
