Brickcity, I have the same thought. This can move forward but somehow the developer for The Boulevards can't find a way to build out Phase II and add more mixed use/residential going on a highly visibly but very well connected location. The underwhelming bank branch next to University Tower is just as disappointing result for a more bolder plan that incorporated two hotels, structured parking years ago. The whole east side of Brentwood could have been a highly dense, pedestrian friendly, & mix of hotel, retail, office, residential within easy walk to metrolink station on one end and a YMCA/park/greenway on the other if RH and Brentwood would have a had vision or demand a little bit more out of Drury, etc..
Then I think about the fact that the developer of the stalled The Boulevards in RH is the same developer who wants to build a huge strip center at MidTowne plaza instead of proposing a mixed use project on a great location next to Ikea between CORTEX and SLU. Probably the reason why Midtowne Plaza is stalled while you see a mix use, grocery store go down Vande at the Commerce bank site happening is because retail, box store in particular is way over built and those who are building are building office on demand (think RGA), industrial (spec is being built) and multi residential and senior living centers.. Heck, I might lambast Sunnen but at least they comprehend what should be built in the market.
Then I think Richmond Heights itself. Lets see, support density & senior living away from transit but bulldoze a neighborhood for a Menards.
