Busch Stadium, photographed by Amy MonahanBallpark Village, a restaurant and entertainment hub next to Busch Stadium owned by the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team, is preparing to undergo a $220 million expansion in the Missouri city. The project is expected to produce more than 1,500 construction jobs and 1,000 permanent jobs to the region, and has a planned completion date of 2019.

Included in the expansion are a 29-story apartment tower, an office building expected to be around 10 floors and a two-story retail structure, along with additional parking garages. When completed the “class A” office space would be the first new office building completed in downtown St. Louis since 1989.

”Our vision of a mixed-use neighborhood where people live, work and play will become a reality,” Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III said. ”This is a real game-changer for the city of St. Louis and the state of Missouri.”

With its strategic location, globally connected infrastructure, economic diversity, competitive business and labor costs, highly-skilled and hard working talent, reliable and inexpensive energy and a statewide commitment to attracting companies and investment, Missouri is a place where companies come to grow and thrive.
