ST. LOUIS – The Cardinals must watch the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series. But those who want to watch the Cardinals next season will find the finally complete One Cardinal Way with some of the best views in town.

“If you walk around, you’ll see so many things wrapped into one,” says Bill DeWitt III, St. Louis Cardinals president. “Inside you’ve got hang-out areas and TVs and a coffee bar and indoor-outdoor bar; full-service for residents. There’s a gym on the other side of the building. There are cookout areas outside and turf area with great views and the pool. You sort of have everything.”

DeWitt III believes the full potential of this building comes after the COVID pandemic has passed but says this structure was built for working from home while having a view of home plate.

“So many people are working from home,” says Marnie Sauls, executive director of residential management at One Cardinal Way. “You’ve got this additional space to work from little cubbies down here. We’ve got booths set up. So many spaces where people can just spread out.”

DeWitt says the 30-story residential tower in downtown St. louis is 80 percent leased out since opening to the public. While Phase 2 of Ballpark Village settles into the neighborhood, there is a look towards Phase 3.

“I’d love to see a residential tower in addition to this one,” DeWitt says. “I don’t know how big or what sort of format. I was involved in the downtown planning process. They’re unveiling that new plan and it calls for getting more residential downtown.”

Monday morning, it’s a media tour of the amenities deck on the eighth floor overlooking Clark Street and Busch Stadium

From the baseball wall with 1,295 baseballs near the fireplace to the home plate artwork, to pictures of St. Louis teams through the years, there’s a lot to like for a baseball fan in Mound City.

“This morning, I walked in and noticed the chandelier and lighting and paintings are up,” says DeWitt. “I think last time I walked through it was 95 percent and now it’s 100. So, I’m really excited the lighting is on, the fires are on. It feels cozy and feels like home.”

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.
