Cardinals Plan $220 Million Second Phase of Ballpark Village
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 25, 2016 - The St. Louis Cardinals have announced plans for a $220 million, 550,000 square foot second phase of Ballpark Village which will include the construction of a 29-story luxury high-rise residential tower, the first new Class-A office building built in downtown St. Louis in nearly thirty years, and additional retail, restaurant and entertainment space.

In a release, Bill DeWitt III, President of the St. Louis Cardinals said, "We are very excited about the second phase of Ballpark Village. "Our vision of a mixed-use neighborhood where people live, work and play will become a reality. This is a real game-changer for the city of St. Louis and the state of Missouri."

The second phase of Ballpark Village will complete a full build-out of Clark Street with a 29-story glass and steel residential apartment tower on the east end, and a large Class-A office building on the west end, as well as additional retail and entertainment in between, transforming Clark Street into one of the most unique city streets in all of major league sports.

The residential apartment tower will be a modern, 29-story, 230 foot tall, luxury high-rise apartment building at the corner of Clark and Broadway that will offer views of the Gateway Arch, the Mississippi River, the St. Louis skyline, and unobstructed views directly into Busch Stadium.

The Class A office building at the corner of Clark and 8th Street will sit right across from the bronze statues on the NW corner of Busch Stadium, and will also include structured parking below, and street level retail and restaurants. It will be the first "new construction" office building built in downtown St. Louis in more than a generation (Metropolitan Square opened in 1989).

Also in Phase II will be a signature two-story retail marketplace and entertainment venue overlooking the existing Busch II Field, the signature "open space" of Ballpark Village. The marketplace will include diverse food options and other amenities to support the new office and residential tenants in the project.

"The second phase of Ballpark Village is more than five times the scale of the first phase of Ballpark Village," said 7th Ward Alderman Jack Coatar who is sponsoring the legislation to amend the existing development agreement that enabled the 100,000 square foot, $100 million first-phase of Ballpark Village. "This bill will enable one of our city's most successful companies to expand their investment in downtown St. Louis and build on the incredibly strong momentum established with the new ballpark and the first phase of Ballpark Village."

To make the large downtown project a reality, the development team is proposing to use a portion of the new tax revenue generated solely within the Ballpark Village project area, including an additional self-imposed 1% TDD sales tax, to underwrite the bonds issued to support project infrastructure costs. Only taxes generated by the Ballpark Village project itself, as well as private equity and debt investments by the development team, will be used to finance Ballpark Village.

Plans call for construction to get underway during the second half of 2017. While some areas might open in 2018, the entire second phase of Ballpark Village should be finished by 2019.


Cardinals Fans enjoy Ballpark Village
Thousands of visitors toured Ballpark Village, April 6, 2014, in the shadow of the bronze bust of Hall of Fame Broadcaster, Mr. Jack Buck, who thrilled Cardinals baseball fans with his famous "That's a Winner!". The bust and window display honoring Mr. Buck is located on the north side of Busch Stadium, across from Ballpark Village, which is anchored by Cardinals Nation, Budweiser Brew House, FOX Sports Midwest Live!, PBR St. Louis - A Cowboy Bar, Howl at the Moon, and Drunken Fish.

Upgrades and New Changes at Busch Stadium
One of the biggest changes fans noted in the 2015 season at Busch Stadium was the installation of walk-through metal detectors at all of the gates and stadium entrances.
Cardinals Celebrate 10th Anniversary in Busch Stadium
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The Opening Day for 2016 was particularly special as the Cardinals celebrated the 10th anniversary in Busch Stadium and the 2006 World Championship squad.

Located in the heart of the downtown business district, the facility features classic arched openings similar the nearby Cupples Station warehouses, west of the site. The stadium features a creative use of old and new materials, from red brick and concrete to exposed steel and glass.

The majority of spectators have dramatic views of the Gateway Arch and the downtown St. Louis skyline. The ballpark has expanded bleacher sections, a state-of-the-art video board and entertainment system.

The facility has increased access for fans with disabilities, new escalators and more elevators. Disabled drop-off locations are: Gate 2, at Poplar and Eighth Streets; Gate 4 (Plaza of Champions), at Clark and Eighth Streets; and, Gate 6 on Broadway.

A main-level concourse circles the entire ballpark, providing a 360 degree view of the playing field. Home plate is located in the southwest corner of the site. The stadium features lowered seating and scoreboard heights in center field. A public plaza provides a perfect gathering spot for fans before and after games.

Ballpark Village will again be the place to be before, during and after the game. Since opening in March of 2014, Ballpark Village has hosted more than 5 million visitors of all ages from across the country and brought hundreds of great events to downtown.

Ballpark Village entered its second year in 2015 with the opening of the new Crown Room second-floor lounge in Budweiser Brew House, the addition of two 15-foot television screens in Fox Sports Midwest Live!, a two-sided permanent outdoor stage next to the Busch II infield and greatly improved sightlines into left center field in Busch Stadium.
