Plans for former Crestwood Mall site include a grocery store and homes


ST. LOUIS – The vacant Crestwood Mall site at Watson Road and Sappington Road has plans for a new development. The Post-Dispatch reported that plans were made at Thursday night’s Crestwood Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Commission meeting.

The plan includes a Dierbergs grocery store along with an 81 home subdivision. The Post-Dispatch reported that developers are still finalizing details of the proposal that will seek taxpayer assistance including a TIF.

In general, TIFs use future taxes that will be generated from a development to help finance the costs of the project.

The details of the proposal are expected to be submitted to Crestwood city officials in late May, according to the Post-Dispatch. The Crestwood TIF Commission plans to review that proposal at a public meeting on May 27. Then the Crestwood TIF Commission has scheduled a public hearing on this project for June 17.

Since this project was originally unveiled in December, Dierbergs has not determined how much TIF assistance it will seek from the City of Crestwood.

The mall closed in 2013 and was demolished in 2016. However, some underground concrete and other structures are still in place.

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.
