In a press release earlier today, Cortex Innovation Community announced the addition of Manifest Digital to the list of tenants in the @4240 building. Representing a seven-figure investment, Manifest Digital’s 16,751 square foot “Always On” content studio will open in Summer 2014 in the @4240 lab and research facility.
Manifest Digital is the largest independent digital agency in the Midwest, with 130 employees in offices in St. Louis and Chicago. The St. Louis studio will be a blueprint for a similar space to be built for Manifest Digital Chicago in 2015. Forty employees will move into the new St. Louis content studio, and Manifest plans to grow their St. Louis work force by 25% in the coming months. The studio will offer a suite of services from social media analytics to video production, and will also be the new home of Manifest’s state-of-the-art UX Lab.
“This space will have more of a lab or newsroom feel than an office space, offering a 24/7 live feed of client social media assets and giving real-time analysis” said Dan Curran, Manifest Digital Partner. “Locating within the innovation hub that is @4240 and Cortex made sense to us. The space allows for future growth and partnership with other tenants and especially the CIC – St. Louis that is opening this fall.”
