Spiegelglass Construction Completes Build for New First Watch Location

Spiegelglass Construction Builds Two New Area Restaurants


Spiegelglass Construction Company recently completed construction on a brand new First Watch location opening in St. Ann on Monday, May 28th. This is the tenth location for the popular breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant in St. Louis, and the ninth Spiegelglass Construction has built.

The 3,400-square-foot eatery, which will open at 7 a.m. on Monday, is located at 985 Northwest Plaza Drive in the Crossings at Northwest shopping center.

“We’ve had a very longstanding relationship with First Watch,” said Tim Spiegelglass, co-owner of Spiegelglass Construction Company. “We’re proud to have once again completed this restaurant well in advance of opening so the team had ample time for set-up prior to welcoming customers next week.”

The new restaurant, which will seat 112 people with space for an additional 16 on the outdoor patio, will open with First Watch’s latest interior design which combines farm fresh elements with a high-energy, urban vibe. First Watch’s curated menu takes an elevated approach to traditional and innovative offerings made to order using farm fresh ingredients.


St. Louis-based Spiegelglass Construction Company will be beginning construction on a second Fitz’s Root Beer location in early July. The new 9,000 square-foot restaurant, which will feature both a full service bar as well as a second dairy bar for shakes and floats, will seat 220 people inside with space for an additional 40 on the outdoor patio.

The new restaurant will be part of South County’s new Gathering Square Development located at 5228-5240 S. Lindbergh Blvd. According to Spiegelglass Construction, the new Fitz’s location is expected to open before the year’s end.

Fitz’s Root Beer was created in St. Louis in 1947, and opened its first restaurant in the Delmar Loop in 1993. This is the second location for Fitz’s owner and president Michael Alter.

“We’ve been looking for a location for quite some time and we’re excited to be part of the Gathering Square development,” said Fitz’s owner and president Michael Alter. “We’re worked with Spiegelglass Construction on projects before, and are looking forward to their help with this expansion.”

“Fitz’s is a well-known establishment in St. Louis for a good reason,” said Barry Spiegelglass, co-owner of Spiegelglass Construction Company. “Our family frequents the current location for their famous floats and turkey burgers, and we’re thrilled to be working with Michael once again on his new space.”

Based in St. Louis, Spiegelglass Construction Company has been a family-owned general contractor since its inception in 1904. For more information, please visit
