Message from Alderman Bateman
With the New Year around the corner, I thought that this would be a good time to review 2018 economic development in our great City and take a look forward at what is planned for 2019. So, hang on tight. Our City is on the move!
Our Premier 370 Business Park continues to grow with huge warehouse and distribution centers. A 300,000-square-foot spec building was completed on Parkway Drive near Truman Boulevard. Grove Collaborative opened a fulfillment center and RB added its third location in St. Peters in a new 300,000-square-foot building on Premier Parkway. Amazon (855,000-sq.-ft. fulfillment center) and FedEx (450,000-square-foot distribution center) are under construction. And, a 375,000-square-foot spec building for office/warehouse is also under construction.
Shoppes of Mid Rivers, our new 270,000-square-foot retail center located at Mid Rivers Mall Drive and I-70 Service Road North, continues to add businesses. Ross Dress for Less, Uptown Cheapskate and Blaze Pizza opened at the new retail center in 2018, and Outback Steakhouse is under construction.
Mid Rivers Mall also added clothing retail company H&M, plus opened up a new Pop-Up Shop where local boutiques can rent on a weekly basis. American Eagle Outfitters is reinvesting with a remodel of their current location. And, Mid Rivers Mall is reinvesting with improvements to the inside and exterior, including upgrades to parking light lots and parking lot resurfacing. Cubesmart also is building an indoor storage facility on an outlot at Mid Rivers Mall.
Fresh Thyme market opened a 27,709-sq.-ft. grocery store with two additional commercial lots off Route 364 at Woodstone Dr.
Other notable openings in 2018 included three Regions Bank locations, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, Five Stars Granite processing, storage and showroom, Primrose School day care center, The Watering Bowl kennel, 311 Wine House & Beer Garden and a new Mid Riveres Motors building.
Other projects under construction include Holiday Inn Express on Veterans Memorial Parkway, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Total Access Urgent Care on Mid Rivers Mall Drive south of St. Peters Square, Arrowhead Building Supply showroom at the former I-70 Shoppers Fair, and Mid West Gunite concrete swimming pool materials company.
Plans are also underway for Dudas Fitness, Home 2 Suites by Hilton, St. Peters Medical urgent care, The Learning Experience (two preschools) and a rebuild of Vantage Credit Union.
Some exciting new residential developments are also in the works for St. Peters:
We’re adding plenty of attractive apartment complexes, including 5300 Centre across from City Hall, Pure Apartments on Cloverleaf Drive, and Meadowridge Apartments south of Route 364 east of Robertridge Drive. Aspen Heights townhomes are under construction on Central School Road west of Kisker Road.
New places also are on the way for senior living. Clarendale of St. Peters is a senior living community under construction on Mexico Road east of Mid Rivers Mall Drive. McClay Road Senior Center is a skilled care facility nearing completion on McClay east of Jungermann. Aspen Trails also added a second phase of senior living apartments west of Salt Lick Road north of Boschert Landing Blvd.

PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN BATEMAN:
Random Acts of Kindness
Holidays are fast approaching and what better time than now to honor our community’s unsung heroes with a Random Acts of Kindness nomination?
We implemented this awesome recognition in 2017 and have been so pleased with the results of our residents’ response that some months we’ve awarded two or three worthwhile citizens. It only takes someone doing a kind act to make the whole day for both the recipient and the giver to feel good inside! What a wonderful gift and it does not cost any money!
Please take the time to nominate a new citizen in 2019 so we can keep the chain of good deeds flowing and give the much-deserved kudos to those who go above and beyond to make our great City the best place to live, work and play.
Speaking of “live, work and play” I hope you take time in the cold months ahead to join in our many activities offered at our Rec-Plex. You can participate in many events, from exercise to skating, sporting events or just relax and be in the audience watching some of the great talent we showcase in our region. We grow champions here in St. Peters!
The economy is on the upswing so many new employment opportunities are available in the new year. The housing market is also stable and sellers are experiencing a great return on their investment as property values continue to rise in our region.
This is all good news to begin the 2019 year. I wish you and your families a very blessed Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year. It has been my joy and honor to be your voice at City Hall and I hope we continue to move our City in the direction that we all can be proud to call our Hometown. Our motto that we will continue to hold fast "in God we trust" is a proud statement that we in St Peters will steadfastly support.
WARD 2 TOWN HALL: Please mark your calendars to attend our annual Ward 2 Town Hall meeting on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9:30-11 a.m. at Bellemeade Manor clubhouse, 100 Bellemeade Dr. Come for coffee & doughnuts and conversation with Jerry Hollingsworth and Judy Bateman, your Ward 2 Aldermen.
Enjoy your holiday celebrations and make sure to contact me with any concerns or suggestions you may have. Merry Christmas!
