The REAL Ballpark Village?

While plans to redevelop the area to the north of Busch Stadium as Ballpark Village are floundering, good things are happening just to the south of the stadium at Chouteau's Landing. The first phase of Chouteau's Landing continues to progress, with Bushwoods Bar & Grill scheduled to open in a few weeks.

Instead of floating pie-in-the-sky plans, the developer - Chivvis Development LLC - has quietly been at work renovating a strip of historic buildings that, while receiving relatively little fanfare, will actually go a long way toward connecting downtown with the thriving Soulard neighborhood to the south.

It's projects like this that are making a real difference downtown, not unrealized entertainment districts.

To learn more about Chouteau's Landing, check out the recent article in the Post-Dispatch and last night's story on KMOV.
