Maryland Heights Receives Six Proposals for Maryland Park Lake District Development Area

Maryland Heights, Mo., June 30, 2016 – The City of Maryland Heights has received six proposals to develop various parts of its 1,800-acre Maryland Park Lake District development area.  Today is the deadline for interested developers to submit their proposals to the City.  Proposals were received from the following developers:

  • Altus Properties
  • Creve Coeur Airport
  • Hat Trick Consultants, LLC
  • SLCSW Farm, LLC
  • Howard Bend Development, LLC
  •  Panattoni Development

The City will now begin the process of studying the proposals and conducting a series of public workshops and other meetings for input leading to a final decision sometime in February on which developments will proceed.  A summary of each proposal received will be issued by the City on July 11, and the first public workshop is scheduled for July 26 at the Maryland Heights Government Center.

The City’s Comprehensive Plan calls for the development area to be a mixed use destination featuring 30% open and green space along with regional retail, an office campus, hospitality and entertainment venues, regional sport venues and residential developments.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) determined that most of the property in the development area is not flood plain thanks to the 500-year levee protecting the area from the Missouri River and may be developed for commercial, industrial or residential uses.  More information about the development area can be found at www.mplakedistrict.com.

The original deadline for proposals was extended after the St. Louis Blues recently announced plans to build a new ice sports complex on St. Louis County-owned land adjacent to the City’s development area.

“The news about the St. Louis Blues project did not significantly alter the level of interest previously expressed by developers to the City,” said Jim Krischke, City Administrator for Maryland Heights.  “I think this says a lot about the economic viability of this development area to stand on its own and make Maryland Heights a more attractive place to live, play, visit, work and do business.”
