We are honored and excited to welcome NGA and its employees into the next great neighborhood of St. Louis. The overwhelming local, State & Federal agency alignment made it possible to prepare this site for NGA and we are proud to be part of this community. A series of events will now occur to prepare for NGA’s relocation to north St. Louis. 

"From our proximity to current employees and the next generation NGA workforce to a ready-to-go construction force and our connection to the type of high-tech facilities on which our national security will rely in the future, St. Louis is stepping up to the plate for the NGA. The many benefits to the future of both St. Louis and NGA are immeasurable, promising, and exciting." 

- Mayor Francis Slay
