St. Louis is the 20th largest metropolitan area in the U.S. and home to nine Fortune 1000 companies (nine of them in the top 500), two professional sports teams (the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Blues), great cultural and educational institutions as well as superb recreational opportunities and the “Gateway Arch”, a 630-foot symbol of our city that is recognized all over the world. Yet, St. Louis also provides the convenience, affordability and sense of connectedness of a smaller community.
St. Louis began as a trading center in 1764, grew into a manufacturing powerhouse, and is now one of the nation’s most diverse metropolitan economies, with a $150 Billion regional economy that is broad, established and growing. St. Louis has a skilled work force and about half of the gross product and employment in our area is represented by health, education, financials and business services. Interstates 55, 70, 64, and 44 all pass through our city.
St. Louis has a very affordable cost of living, well below the U.S. metro average and ranked 7th in the nation as most affordable city by Forbes. St. Louis is a “20-minute city” with the U.S. Census bureau consistently ranking us below the national average commute time to work. We are also a community of big hearts with Charity Navigator ranking St. Louis as the 16th Most Generous Large City. Our United Way contributions are regularly among the highest in the nation.
St. Louis is also an affordable and cost-friendly place to do business, with KPMG ranking us 9th in their latest Competitive Alternative Study. We have the lowest effective corporate income tax rate, assisted by Missouri’s withholding tax rebate for new job creation and the state’s move to “location of benefit” sourcing for income from services. We also have the lowest electricity and the second lowest industrial lease costs in the nation.
