Colonial MarketPlace is Headed for the Home Stretch

66,000 square foot center in both Ladue & Clayton features a distinct Williamsburg design.

The Colonial MarketPlace in Ladue and Clayton is on a fast track to a construction finish. Everything should be completed by mid to late spring.

Already, tenants are moving in and open for business. The DESCO Group project has already welcomed Blown Away, a hair dry bar created by two native St. Louisans; Ivy Hill Boutique, stylish women’s clothes with its first location in the Central West End; Southwest Hearing, FedEx Kinkos; Ladue News and Splash casual clothing which relocated last summer from the Galleria.

The center is 75 percent leased with many interested parties seeking the final spaces. Leases have been signed and build out is well underway for Dimvaloo Active Living, Lorna Jane activewear from Australia; restaurants Cini Italian Chow; and the Original Pancake House (first location in Chesterfield Valley).

 The project represents 66,000 square feet of workable space. Much of it is in the old Wild Oats Market location which left years ago. 

 “This is a unique mix of boutique retail and restaurants. This is a great amenity for the community and our shopping centers (Schnucks Ladue Crossing) which is contiguous to the (new bike) trail,” said DESCO President Mark Schnuck.

A new road will cross the bike trail and connect the two centers.

The MarketPlace is located in both Clayton and Ladue. The line divides right down the middle of the Splash store.

The property will be heavily landscaped both at the street and store front levels. A Chippendale fence will run the length of the property along Ladue Road. The entire parking lot will be rebuilt, once the weather improves. Boxwoods and annuals will be in the planting areas. More spaces are being added to the lot.

DESCO purchased the property from Reliance Bank in September, 2011.

Here is the complete list of tenants and their status:
