    ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - The St. Louis Cardinals announced Wednesday financing for construction of the first phase of Ballpark Village has been closed.

    Preliminary site work started Wednesday, and a formal groundbreaking ceremony will be held Friday, February 8.

    The first phase of Ballpark Village is slated to be complete by Opening Day 2014 and will cost $100 million. The project will include 100,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space on Clark Street next to Busch Stadium. Streets, parking, and site infrastructure are also included in the first phase.

    Other structures that will be built in the first phase include Cardinals Nation, Budweiser Brew House, and Live! at Ballpark Village.

    (KMOV) – PBR St. Louis: A Cowboy Bar will be one of the first restaurants to open at Ballpark Village, making it the eighth location across the country.

    It will be Professional Bull Riders Inc.’s only venue in the St. Louis region.

    “PBR wants to be in world-class districts within very special cities and there is no doubt that Ballpark Village in St. Louis fits the bill,” said PBR CEO Sean Gleason on Thursday. “Our goal with the PBR club was to create a concept that captures both the electricity that is PBR as well as the warm camaraderie that exists between our patrons at our events.”

    An update from June

    Take a look at these new renderings the St. Louis Cardinals released of the $650 million Ballpark Village project. These renderings, released Thursday, are perhaps the most comprehensive and detailed images of what fans can expect once the project is complete.

    The first phase of the project broke ground in February and is on schedule to be complete by spring 2014, according to Chase Martin, development director of Ballpark Village for developer Cordish Cos. The first phase is a $100 million project that still has 15,000 square feet of available space.

    Martin said there has been “overwhelming interest” from potential tenants. Martin wouldn’t disclose the names of those potential tenants, or the type of tenants interested. Martin did say the organization is close to finalizing a deal with one tenant.

    Confirmed in phase one so far are an Anheuser-Busch Brewhouse, a 20,000-square-foot space for a restaurant and beer garden; Cardinals Nation, a 30,000-square-foot space for a hall of fame museum, bar and restaurant; and an 8,000-square-foot cowboy bar, PBR St. Louis.

    After the third Busch Stadium opened in 2006, plans for Ballpark Village repeatedly stalled and changed, and for a time the site was a giant pit.

    The Cardinals organization is one of the largest privately-held organizations in St. Louis with an estimated revenue of $233 million in 2012. The Cardinals are owned by a group of private investors and led by Chairman and CEO Bill DeWitt Jr.
