Nixon visits St. Louis to stump for Boeing project

Wednesday, 27 November 2013 06:16 Published in Local News

   Governor Jay Nixon will be in St. Louis County Wednesday to publicly pitch his plan to lure a new Boeing aircraft plant to the area.  Nixon will speak to St. Louis business and civic leaders at a luncheon hosted by Progress 64 West, a group that promotes development along the Interstate 64 corridor.  

   The governor met privately with Boeing executives last week as Missouri competes with at least five other states to produce the Boeing 777X commercial airplane.

   A new plant would likely mean thousands of new jobs.  

   Republican state Senate Majority Leader Ron Richard has said he supports special tax incentives to try to land the plant.  

   Boeing expects to choose a location just after the first of the year.

For Sale: Shuttered Crestwood Mall

Wednesday, 27 November 2013 06:06 Published in Local News
   A once-bustling Crestwood mall will likely never see shoppers again.  
 
   After a failed effort to secure tax incentives to revamp the former Crestwood Plaza,  its owners are walking away from redevelopment plans and putting the property up for sale.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Chicago-based Centrum Partners and co-owner Angelo, Gordon & Co., a New York-based hedge fund, have contracted CBRE, a commercial real-estate firm, to sell the 47 acre site along Watson Road.  
 
   It'll be up to the buyer to decide, but the old mall will likely be raised.  A CBRE broker who's handling the sale, told the paper the site offers a good opportunity for a hospital or university to build a new campus.
