Bio-Research & Development Growth (BRDG) Park at the Danforth Plant Science Center helps plant and life sciences companies bridge research, resources, and relationships to achieve commercial success. BRDG Park builds on the remarkable success of Danforth Plant Science Center in a collaboration that provides great opportunities for emerging plant and life science companies to grow as the St. Louis region expands as a global center for plant science. BRDG Park is driving innovation in agriculture technologies in ag-bio, food and nutrition, biofuels, sustainable materials, clean-tech and animal health.
The three building BRDG Park complex will ultimately total approximately 450,000 square feet of high-tech wet laboratory and office space specifically designed to support the needs of emerging clean-tech, plant and life science businesses.
As a global center for ag tech R&D and agriculture production, St. Louis is the right location for BRDG Park. The region is already home to more than 400 plant and life sciences companies and boasts the largest concentration of PhDs in plant science in the world. Fifty percent of the nation’s farmland lies within a 500-mile radius.
