Creve Coeur's Board of Adjustment will hold an additional hearing on the four-story complex Thursday night.
The Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing to get feedback for a a Chicago based developer's plans for a 174-unit apartment complex called The Vanguard at Creve Coeur. The property is the former home of Immanuel Baptist Church, 10360 Old Olive Street. According to City Planner Whitney Kelly, the sale of the 5.26 acre Immanuel property is contingent on city approval of the project. The prospective owner, Covington Realty Partners, needs to have the property rezoned from General Commercial to Core Business. A Conditional Use Permit would also be required for the four-story structure. Thursday night, the city's Board of Adjustment will hear Covington's request for a variance to allow for a parking structure …

The document that has been used as a guide for making land-use decisions in Creve Coeur will be re-evaluated.
A joint session of Creve Coeur's city council and the city's Planning and Zoning Commission Monday night did not reveal any hints regarding possible changes in direction as far as the future of the city's Comprehensive Plan, but instead focused on just how city leaders should go about getting input from the public. The overall process of evaluating the plan, which city officials use as a guidepost in making decisions about land-use and zoning, will pick up in March and gain steam in May. Community Development Director Paul Langdon has said that the document itself remains relevant today but is starting the process off with no assumptions about what will happen. You can find the Comprehensive Plan on the city's website. Ward 3 Councilman …

The spinoff of the Maplewood sports bar could open in June.
The owner of the Post Sports Bar and Grill in Maplewood gained Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission approval Tuesday on a conditional use permit to occupy space at Creve Coeur's Farmers Bank Shopping Center across from CityPlace. The decision now moves to City Council for a pair of readings, including one Monday night. Owner Adrian Glass has previously cited his restaurant's interest in the former Growlers Pub space there, considering its access to Interstate 270 and Creve Coeur's potential lunch and happy hour crowd. The Planning and Zoning Commission also voted to change city code which currently limits restaurant space in retail and office space under two acres in certain zoned areas to 25 percent of the entire square footage …

The project's negative recommendation will move to the Creve Coeur City Council.
Opponents of a proposed senior living/single-family housing development planned for Ladue Road scored a victory Monday night when Creve Coeur's Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5-0 against recommending Delmar Gardens' plan for more than 20 acres of land near Interstate 270. Monday night's meeting brought out more supporters of the project than a public hearing last month, including residents of the existing Delmar Gardens facility in Creve Coeur and employees. One resident called current conditions like being in "a cracker box" with three beds in a room. Supporters were still outweighed by opponents Monday. In the end, commissioners largely felt that the project would continue to be at odds with the city's Comprehensive Plan, which is …

The Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School's plans to brand itself have run into trouble as far as city sign codes are concerned.
The newly formed Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School now housed on the campus of Congregation B'Nai Amoona in Creve Coeur may have something of an identity problem. The school, the product of a merger between The Saul Mirowitz Day School and the Solomon Schechter Day School, is trying to build a new brand in a new location. The problem, in the opinion of the Community Development staff with the City of Creve Coeur, is that the school's signage and proposed lightpole flags doesn't mesh with what is already on the B'Nai Amoona property at Mason and Conway Roads and in the residential neighborhood nearby While on the same property, the two entities are considered completely different entities, with the B'Nai Amoona essentially acting as a …

A Planning and Zoning meeting Monday could pave the way for a commercial bakery as a potential tenant.
The owner of the Shoppes at Westgate were dealt a split decision earlier this week by a decision from Creve Coeur City Councilmembers in the firm's attempt to repeal a city ordinance which has made it difficult to field offers for a new tenant in the Creve Coeur shopping center. Rather than eliminate a 25 percent limit on food and drinking establishments in the Mixed Use-zoned area as had been requested and endorsed by Planning and Zoning Commission members, Council members voted Monday to raise the limit to 40 percent. A lawyer for Westgate had said previously that raising the limit would effectively solve the short-term problem of having to turn away potential suitors for the property who have had interest in putting a restaurant on site…
