PAGEDALE, MO (KPLR) – If all goes as planned; Pagedale could see revitalization along Page and Ferguson Avenue around the 6800 block for a project called Pagedale Town Center. The project is the brain child of Beyond Housing, a developer of affordable housing. The non-profit became a commercial developer in 2010 with the construction of a Save-A-Lot grocery store that now serves the low income of Pagedale and the surrounding communities.
The project has built a bank branch, 42 senior housing apartments, and now is poised build a 12,000 square foot complex that will house health services, businesses and a 375 seat first run movie theatre with 4 screens.
It’s expected the St. Louis County Health Department will lease space in the complex to provide social and human services, to an area designated by the federal government as a health professional shortage area, with few medical services and specialty services.
The project is being financed by Beyond Housing and Enterprise financial community development arm and governmental tax credits.
The theatre is scheduled to open on November 6, 2015, and the rest of the project in 2016.
