ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Board of Alderman have approved plans for the $220 million second phase of Ballpark Village that will include a residential tower, office, retail, restaurant and entertainment space near Busch Stadium.

The board approved the plans for the 550,000-square-foot second phase of the project Friday.

The highlight of the construction will be a 29-story glass-and-steel apartment tower, while office and retail space is expected to revitalize the area of downtown around the Cardinals’ ballpark.

Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III said in a statement that the club “appreciates the city’s willingness to work with us to help make our shared vision of a world-class, mix-use neighborhood next to Busch Stadium a reality.”

The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
