ST. LOUIS – In just a few months, about 600 Cardinals fans will be able to watch every game at Busch Stadium and they won’t need tickets.

You don’t need them when you live right across the street.  FOX 2/NEWS 11 got the first inside views from the new “One Cardinal Way” at Ballpark Village, Tuesday. 

“Ballpark Village phase two kind of puts that cherry on top of our planning,” said Bill DeWitt III, Cardinals Team President. 

He took us for a tour, hard hats required. 

It is still a construction zone inside the 300-unit apartment tower:  the crown jewel of Ballpark Village.

An 8th floor deck with an infinity pool, green space, patios, even ballpark style seating will be open to all residents.  The space has views into Busch Stadium; the more than 20-year vision is taking shape.

“That’s going to be a space that truly is unique in St. Louis and to have the view of the game off that deck as part of what everybody gets as a resident here I think is going to make this sort of the ‘talk of baseball’ for a period of time,” said DeWitt III. 

About three months of work remain on the $120 million building, but the windows are in and views are waiting.  You can have a view of the games while lying in bed on the 10th floor. 

Another unit on the 8th floor is close to finished:  a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, rents for about $2,800 a month. Rents range from $1,300 to $7,900.  All major appliances are furnished but the views are the top amenities with walk-out balconies staring at the Arch and pillow-top looks of the Old Courthouse.

“When you think of St. Louis, you think of the Cardinals, you think of the Arch, all of those things.   You get that all right here from your view in your living room.  You can’t help but walk toward the windows every time you’re in an apartment,” said Marnie Sauls, Executive Director of Residential Management. 

Move in day is June 23rd with the building already 55-percent leased.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
