Clayton Company Gives up Expansion Plans Over Eminent Domain Setback: Missourinet.com, Jefferson City MO, 7/9/07

By Steve Walsh

Centene Corporation is going to give up on plans to expand its Clayton headquarters and will take its 900 new jobs elsewhere.

The company had lost a lengthy court battle over the planned use of eminent domain and now says it will give up efforts for what was to have been the Centene Plaza development, which would have included the company's new headquarters as well as retail space.

The company has indicated it will consider options, which could see it move some or all of its operations to another location.
