More development coming to the Cortex

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Ikea and other development projects are coming to the Cortex area of Midtown St. Louis.

City Communications Director Maggie Crane said Ikea generated 300 jobs.  However, there are several other developments that are expected to generate more money and jobs to the area.  

Crane said the area has a lot of potential to attract even more development, so much so that the city won a grant from the Department of Transportation to put in a new metro stop in the cortex.

“With Tim Horton's coming in for example, there's a need. They’ve got all of these people working there. All these people coming from Ikea,’ said Crane.

The Tim Horton’s location is expected to bring 50 new jobs to the area. It will soon open near Clayton and Boyle
