ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- After a decade of delay, the Cardinals break ground on Ballpark Village Friday.

The scaled down version of the original plan will have shops, entertainment, restaurants, a Cardinals Hall of Fame, and seating that will look down into Busch Stadium from beyond left field.

The old Bowling Hall of Fame will be demolished. A street grid will be put in where the old Busch Stadium used to be. Water, sewer, and electric utilities will be installed for expanding Ballpark Village.

The Cardinals hope Ballpark Village will be finished for opening day of 2014.
