Public Hearing Tuesday: Jaguar Plans Getting Creve Coeur Review

Plaza Motors wants to locate new Jaguar/Land Rover dealership on Olive Boulevard.

Creve Coeur residents and anyone else interested in Plaza Motors' plans to put operation on the current site of will get their chance in a public hearing scheduled for Tuesday night.

Plaza's other dealership a few blocks west on Olive Boulevard would remain.

The Reuther property at 11654 Olive has been on the market for some time since it lost its status as a Chrysler dealership. The property has been seen as an attractive piece of land as the city pursues a long term vision of a "downtown development" plan. According to city leaders, Target has kicked the tires on the property but hasn't been able to cobble enough land together to make it work.

A spokesperson for Asbury Motors, Plaza's parent company in Georgia, would not answer questions about the firm's interest in the property.

A city staff report called the proposal "unconventional under the current interpretations of a 'downtown,'" but said it meets many of the goals of the city's comprehensive plan. The report also said the development pledges to provide the right-of-way needed to eventually add a third lane of Olive Boulevard eastbound.

The project will be heard at the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting Tuesday night beginning at 7 p.m.
