Economic Development

The benefits to living, working, shopping, playing and doing business in Brentwood are endless.

Brentwood is a thriving community located in the heart of St. Louis County, just south of the County seat, in Clayton and 1.5 miles west of the City of St. Louis. Brentwood is minutes away from area attractions such as Forest Park, the St. Louis Science Center, the St. Louis Art Museum and the world renowned St. Louis Zoo. Brentwood is easily accessible to and from  I-170, I-44, and I-64.

The City of Brentwood is a progressive community, one that is moving forward while still maintaining an atmosphere that keeps us unique. Brentwood is known as the "City of Warmth" to our residents because of its small-town charm and sense of community. The city's annual Brentwood Days festival brings the community together each September for live entertainment, food, free carnival rides and games, and a fireworks show. Brentwood's Parks & Recreation Department offers fitness and educational classes, an indoor ice rink and sports leagues. Residents age 60 and over or with disabilities can access free transportation to shopping, doctor visits or other destinations throughout the area via the City's MAGIC bus service.

Brentwood is a premier residential community, offering a variety of housing options, including single family homes, upscale yet affordable condominium developments, and apartments. Brentwood is a full-service community with its own police and fire departments, city-owned and operated residential trash and curbside recycling services, and one-stop-shop licensing and permitting. With its housing quality, beautiful neighborhoods, ample parks and walking trails, and top-notch city services, the quality of life in Brentwood is unsurpassed in the region.

The City of Brentwood encompasses approximately two square miles yet is packed full of advantages as a business and employment center too. Brentwood's central location in the region, as well as its proximity to major research hospitals, universities and downtown St. Louis are reasons many technology and life-science businesses have located here. For many of national retailers, Brentwood is the location of their best performing store in the region.
