Edge @ BRDG (Bio Research Development Growth) is an innovative 160,000 square foot four (4) story lab and office building under construction on the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center campus in Creve Coeur, Missouri. This is Larry Chapman’s first project developed by his new firm, Seneca Commercial Real Estate.
Located in an Opportunity Zone, this development became reality through creative financing and a complex legal structure involving an Opportunity Zone Fund, a land lease, a Chapter 100 lease, which came together to create a new headquarters for Benson Hill, one of the fastest growing leaders in the field of plant sciences, with state of the art lab space and building amenities designed to appeal to professionals seeking a collaborative, healthy and fun atmosphere.
Clayco is the design builder and Lamar Johnson Collaborative as the architect for the building. Larson Capital is a capital partner and Bank of Washington provided financing. The building is expected to be completed in May of 2020.
