Premier 370 Booming with New Business
If you haven’t driven down Premier Parkway recently, take a little trip to see the great big buildings that are going up as Premier 370 Business Park development really takes off. We’ve got a lot going on at this new 850-acre business park, and plenty of more interest from other companies.
Here’s what’s happened in just the last year at Premier 370:
- Amazon continues to build an 855,800-square-foot facility for a Fulfillment Center and Storage building. Completion date is mid 2019.
- Central States Manufacturing is approved for a 53,600-square-foot facility across from FedEx.
- Duke Realty continues to build a 375,000-square-foot warehouse available for lease.
- FedEx continues to build a 491,252-square-foot distribution facility on the east side of Spencer Road.
Duke Realty has about 200 acres of potential development land remaining at Premier 370.
It’s wonderful to see all of these new businesses and the many jobs that they are bringing to our area. We have asked the businesses to look at the St. Peters and St. Charles County residents first when hiring.
It’s also great to see our existing businesses shine, too. Mid Rivers Mall is still going strong after the Holiday Season, and we hope to see more shoppers hit the stores for more great buys there. CubeSmart Storage is nearing completion adjacent to the mall, and H&M Clothing opened in the mall near the food court which I hear has groovy clothing at a reasonable price.
Mid Rivers Mall’s new “Pop-Up Shops” concept is doing great this year. Local businesses can rent this Pop-Up Shop in Mid Rivers Mall for a week at a time at an affordable rate of $300 rent and 15% of gross sales exceeding $3,000. The mall will provide all utilities, fixtures including racks, tables, mannequins and hangers, pallet wall to make your space any size and include dressing rooms, signage for your store and exposure on Mid Rivers Mall social media. If you’re interested, contact Mid Rivers Mall at 636-970-2610, ext. 227, to learn more.
It’s always great to stop at the mall and see all the new stores and take advantage of all the great buys.
Syberg’s has opened in the former Joe’s Crab Shack on Suemandy Drive, and Popeye’s Chicken opened on Salt Lick Rd. next to Walgreens. A new Freddy’s Hamburgers has opened at 3889 Veterans Memorial Parkway.
Please save your aluminum cans for our "Pennies for Patriots Program" and drop them off on the west side of City Hall in the Brown Dumpster or at Recycle City in the big Blue Dumpster or at the Mayor Tom Brown Senior Center inside in the two small blue containers.
All the money raised goes to the USO at Lambert Field for the Guys and Gals who serve us here and across the sea. It’s a home away from home to make their stay comfortable. This is a way we need to “Thank” them for the Freedoms we have today. God Bless America!
Please remember that as your alderman, my door is always open. Contact me with any concern you might have at 636-485-5710 or email me at email@example.com. I am proud to serve as your alderman and value your comments.
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN REITMEYER:
A Brand New Year for St. Peters To Serve You
When the skies let loose with the fluffy white flakes of snow, our street crews work intensively to maintain and repair our roads in an effort to control pavement failure caused by the extreme changes in temperatures. They do their best keeping up with potholes that occur, especially this time of year with the fluctuating temperatures.
The street crews will be out in force repairing and replacing pavement. Some residents have questioned how the determination is made as to where and when repairs or replacement of pavement is made unless there is an emergency that a pothole or deep crack that needs to be fixed.
The City uses a guideline we call the “Pavement Management Program” that is designed to provide well maintained, high-quality streets and sidewalks in our City at the lowest reasonable cost. A computer database contains maintenance records of every street in the City including the current pavement condition.
Planned levels of maintenance are carefully matched with available funds to achieve the best possible level of service across the City. That is a big task since we have nearly 550 lane miles of streets.
I am told that properly installed concrete pavement has a life span of about 35 years and that the average useful life of properly installed asphalt pavement is 17 years. You will see the Streets Department crews in your neighborhoods periodically sealing cracks and performing miscellaneous spot repairs to extend the life of the pavement.
Older streets in the City were constructed directly on a compacted soil sub-grade. Since 1998, all new pavement placed in the City of St. Peters has been constructed on four-inch thick aggregate rock base providing a harder, more stable base, which helps to extend the life of the pavement.
If you see a pothole in need of repair, be sure to report it. Call me and leave a message and I will take care of it for you, or you can report it directly to the City’s Citizen Action Center at 636-477-6600, ext. 1225. Our crews will work to get the pothole filled right away.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday, and all of us at City Hall are working for a great and prosperous New Year. Let’s also keep our servicemen and women in our prayers and wish them the strength and courage to bring us back the freedoms we look forward to each day. If you see one of them in uniform, please stop and shake their hand and say “Thank You.” It means a lot to them.
Please save those aluminum cans for our "Pennies for Patriots Program" and drop them off on the west side of City Hall in the Brown Dumpster or at Recycle City in the big Blue Dumpster.
