Gov. Jay Nixon today joined local governmental and company leaders to break ground on St. Louis-based World Wide Technology’s new global headquarters in Westport Plaza, a 42-acre commercial development center located in Maryland Heights. The expansion is the centerpiece of a $95 million joint redevelopment project by World Wide Technology and Lodging Hospitality Management. As part of this important expansion, World Wide Technology is expected to create an additional 500 jobs over the next several years.
“This is a great day for St. Louis as World Wide Technology embarks on another significant expansion and continues to create hundreds of jobs and further strengthen the region’s position as a hub for technology and innovation,” Gov. Nixon said. “These are good, high-paying jobs so I’m proud we could help make this project a reality and build on the progress we’ve made to bring Missouri’s unemployment rate to its lowest point in nearly a decade.”
