ST. ANN, MO (KTVI) - Northwest Plaza is coming down. Construction on a new development is ramping up.  The former Sears Automotive is scheduled to be the first to come down.

When the project is done, the city of St. Ann and developers are looking forward to new big-box stores, restaurants and a renovated JC Penney and Macy's.

The groundbreaking starts at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning on St. Charles Rock Road near Lindbergh at the Sears Auto Center.
