World Wide Technology and Lodging Hospitality Management plan St. Louis headquarters, 100 new jobs
ST. LOUIS, Mo. — World Wide Technology (WWT) and Lodging Hospitality Management (LHM) are proud to announce a $95 Million joint development effort to create a revitalized Westport Plaza. This announcement concludes an extensive twelve-month effort planning the new development. The project includes support from the State of Missouri, St. Louis County, Maryland Heights and other local agencies. Once complete, the revitalized Westport Plaza will be the new home for World Wide Technology’s global headquarters and will also include a significant upgrade to Westport Plaza.
WWT, one of the largest privately held firms in the country and a four-time recipient of Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Places to Work, selected Westport Plaza following an exhaustive, multi-market search for a new headquarters site. The new 210,000 square-foot building will open in mid-2017 and will accommodate up to 1,000 employees. WWT’s existing campus in Maryland Heights will continue to operate as a technology and innovation park housing the company’s Advanced Technology Center, IT and other operations. Both locations will support the continued growth of WWT with annual additions of approximately 100 new employees across the St. Louis Metro area.
The new WWT headquarters has been designed by M+H Architects and will be built by a joint venture between TW Constructors and Clayco, all located in St. Louis. Once complete, the building will be a state-of-the-art headquarters’ for WWT and will become an integral part of the revitalized Westport Plaza.
