Reinsurance Group of America Breaks Ground on new 405,000-Square-Foot HQ Complex
By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor
Reinsurance Group of America Inc. recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new global headquarters in Chesterfield. The new 405,000-square-foot complex will include two five-story office towers, each of equal size. The two buildings will be linked by a two-story atrium lobby.
Located at 16600 Swingley Ridge Road, the headquarters will feature state-of-the-art security systems, a café capable of seating 500 people and a 2,500-square-foot fitness facility. The site was chosen by Reinsurance Group of America with growth in mind, and the new complex will include room for the workforce expansion the company anticipates over the next several years. To support future growth in the long-term the site has enough space for another office building.
“Breaking ground on our new global headquarters is a great way to celebrate RGA’s 40th anniversary. Even with our entire St. Louis workforce in the new building, it will still have room for a significant number of additional associates to satisfy our planned growth,” said Greig Woodring, president and Chief Executive Officer of RGA. “We are very happy to make this commitment to Chesterfield and the St. Louis area,” he said.
St. Louis County Executive Charlie A. Dooley said, “I am proud to partner with RGA and help them grow in St. Louis. I see great things ahead for this company. Honestly, one of the best parts of my job is helping tell stories of people doing good work and helping shape our region for generations to come.”
The builder of the project is Clayco, Inc. and the architects are Fox Architects and Gensler. The project is scheduled to be completed in December 2014.
