The Cardinals newest plans for Ballpark Village are scaled back to a 100,000 square foot retail and entertainment complex that would be built north of the left field bleachers of Busch Stadium.
The plan was released on Monday and while it isn’t as big as previous proposals, the club thinks this will likely succeed. The new Village plans call for a team hall of fame and a themed restaurant, space for huge outdoor events, restaurants, bars and other entertainment.
Cardinals president Bill DeWitt III isn’t publicly naming tenants but says 80% of the space is already spoken for. The Cardinals and co-developer Cordish Co. plan to foot most of the $100 million bill. If the plan is approved by state and city officials, the project could begin as early as this fall.
