    Panattoni to redevelop Ford plant

    Sacramento-based Panattoni Development Company will redevelop the former Ford Assembly plant on Lindbergh Boulevard in Hazelwood.

    The redevelopment agreement announced today includes redeveloping all 155 acres and construction of 11 new buildings totaling about 2.6 million square feet of commercial and industrial space as well as parking.

    The primary uses of the redeveloped site will be light industrial, warehousing and distribution, according to a press release from the City of Hazelwood.

    At its peak when the plant manufactured Explorer and Mountaineer SUVs, the plant supported 2,500 jobs. When the plant was idled in March 2006, it had been in production for 28 years and employed 1,300 workers.

    The company’s prior contract with the United Auto Workers - which was renegotiated last year - prevented the company from selling the plant until September 2007. As first reported on STLtoday.com in January, Dearborn-based Ford Motor Company was in negotiations with a potential developer rumored to be Panattoni.

    The redevelopment plan will be considered by the City Council in its April 2 meeting. It is unclear how many new jobs the redevelopment will bring.
    Panattoni designs and builds a range of commercial, retail and industrial buildings and has multiple projects in the St. Louis area.

    That's great. So, what are they going to put in all of that new industrial space?

        Well, that will just fuck up traffic by the Lindbergh and 270 even more. Wonderful.
        On my mind: How can I shut up the singing English graduate student? How many more lossess will KU's basketball team have than its football team? How will the Rams front office screw up this year?

          Maybe they can put a Hooters there so torch can run for mayor.

            I thought a super-sized Hooters was in the works.

                Let's see. We'll trade $22.00 an hour jobs w/ benefits for $8.00 an hour jobs w/ no bennies. Progress!!!

                So they want to make it into another Earth City but w/o the decent access to highways. Got it.

                Which will die first? This project or The Mills?

                        I'm skipping out on Dogtown today...was going after a nice breakfast at Growlers, but the weather isn't being kind...

                        That and I'm not thrilled with this vendor-thing they decided to roll out this year...

                            I'm not convinced that the vendor-thing will last. Already big arguments aboot it. I blame the bitch from the STLPD but hey, what do I know?

                              I don't know much aboot the background of it all, but it definitely turned me off...a vendor "bought" my cousin's apartment parking space from the building's owner for one day so he can park his truck near his tent...

                              My cousin was none-too-pleased that the super sold his spot without informing him of it...
