The city's Downtown Economic Stimulus Authority has restarted the clock on the construction of Ballpark Village.
Remember Ballpark Village? The multi-million dollar development at the site of the old Busch Stadium that was supposed to rival Kansas City's Power and Light District? (And is in fact a product of the same developer, Cordish Companies.) The development that in 2008 became not-so-affectionately known as Lake DeWitt? That was supposed to be partially completed by the All Star Game and instead got turned into a parking lot and softball field?
Well, kind of like a cat, the project lives again. And this time, Ald. Phyllis Young says she thinks something substantial will get built.
