Brick City Makes: The Hub for Growing Manufacturers offers a one-of-a-kind concept: two acres, under roof, in the city of St. Louis, that is completely dedicated to helping manufacturers succeed. It’s both space and support services for small to mid-sized companies.
There’s nothing exactly like it.
The Space: Brick City Makes provides our tenants with quality, affordable, professionally managed production space that is flexible – rent what you need and expand, all without the hassles of moving or changing your address.
The Services: Brick City Makes tenants also benefit from best-in-class support services in new product development and sales growth, PLUS a collaborative environment where growing companies can learn from one another.
We designed Brick City Makes with the needs, and budgets, of companies like yours in mind.
Brick City Makes is a joint project of two private, non-profit organizations, DeSales Community Development and St. Louis Makes.
DeSales Community Development, founded in 1976, is one of St. Louis’ oldest and most accomplished community development corporations. Brick City Makes will be professionally managed by Fox Grove Management, a wholly owned affiliate of DeSales.
St. Louis Makes was organized in 2014 with a mission to grow manufacturing revenue and employment across the greater St Louis region, especially among smaller manufacturing companies. St. Louis Makes will house its offices and the building and provide services, programming and special events there.
Business leaders from across the Saint Louis areas share their thoughts on Brick City Makes.
Manufacturing is a great economic driver. St. Louis Makes provides opportunity for our region to capitalize on existing resources and provide emerging products the support and resources to grow exponentially.
