The development group pushing to transform the St. Louis Outlet Mall into a 138-acre youth sports complex says it's in the "final stages" of planning.
Big Sports Properties said a "significant portion" of PowerPlex will open by spring 2019 if all financing and construction details are worked out by October. A formal announcement is to be made in the coming weeks, the group said.
“Nothing of worth ever happens quickly,” Big Sports Properties Managing Partner Dan Buck said in a statement. “This is going to be an enormous youth sports complex, attracting over 2.4 million visitors annually to the St. Louis area. It comes with a lot of complex construction and financing challenges. Everyone wants to make sure we are doing thorough due diligence and getting it right."
