Lifestyle Focus Attracts Multi-Family Housing, Experiential Retail and Consistent Crowds
The last 10 years have not been the easiest for malls or retailers of any kind, but The Meadows at Lake St. Louis seems to have landed on the winning formula — an outdoor mixed-use development including shopping, dining, frequent events, and easy access to parking. In addition to the recent announcement for “PURE at The Meadows”, which includes an urban street-like setting, lighted walkways, and water features, The Meadows has signed the following leases in the second half of 2018:
- Roasted Coffee & Wine Bar
- Prados Mexican Restaurant
- The Beardly Man
- Boulevard Bride
- Winghaven Physical Therapy
- Inspire (Aveda) Salon
- Little Bits Gym
- I Love Kickboxing
- Boutique It! Collective
- Plain Wellness Foods
Rick Spector, senior vice president of retail brokerage for JLL, the firm in charge of retail leasing for The Meadows, said “In addition to the new tenants already under construction, The Meadows is working on multiple other new concepts to join in on the excitement before the end of year.”
According to Meir Cohen of Cohen Equities, owner of The Meadows, “We have a unique partnership with Lake St. Louis, businesses in the area, the residents and retailers, along with our management partners of Balke Brown Transwestern and JLL , who have done a great job evolving to the changing economy and sustaining interest in this unique property.”
“Luckily for The Meadows,” said General Manager Alysia Kerkove, “we have been able to adapt quickly, attract residential development, and a retail mix which has placed us at the center of daily life in Lake St. Louis. We host dozens of free family-friendly events every year, introduce new entertainment, dining and experiential concepts to the market with an emphasis on quality, service, safety and fun. With our plans for a hotel and children’s museum still on our radar, there hasn’t been a more exciting time at The Meadows and Lake St. Louis.”
Additional events — including the Lake St. Louis Beerfest on September 22, the annual Monsters on The Meadows Halloween Event on October 27, and festivities throughout the holiday season — will be announced shortly and details will be updated on The Meadows website at http://themeadowsatlsl.com/events.
The Meadows open air shopping, dining and entertainment plaza at Lake St. Louis Boulevard off Interstate 40 invites strolling in a beautifully landscaped campus unrivaled in the greater St. Louis area. The most popular and sought after retailers include Von Maur, Nike Factory Store, Victoria’s Secret, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Old Navy. The Meadows is owned by Cohen Equities, managed by Balke Brown Transwestern, and leased by JLL.
