All the dignitaries were on hand for the opening ribbon cutting of the new Interstate 270 and Page Avenue Interchange on Friday morning. According to MoDOT's press release the improvement “will provide relief to congestion along both northbound 270 and westbound Page/Route 364, as well as better access for drivers to cross the Missouri River.” The $22-million project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

Owners' plan includes building skilled nursing, senior living, residential and office facilities
Property owners have proposed constructing an office building, skilled nursing facility, senior living center and a residential component near the Page Avenue and Interstate 270 interchange in Maryland Heights. The office building would possibly be a medical office. The ownership group, Cypress Land Iii, filed a rezoning request with the city to alter the current planned development. The mixed-use development would be on 34.5 acres in the northwest quadrant of Page and I-270. “We feel we can develop the site ourselves without the assistance of an outside consultant,” Ben Stegmann, one of the site owners, told the Community Development Committee during a meeting Tuesday. The committee had planned to choose traffic and planning consultants …

Maryland Heights officials want to hire consultants to guide them in developing property.
The Maryland Heights City Council voted 6-0 to add $100,000 to the Page / Interstate 270 tax increment financing (TIF) fund budget. The funds come from the TIF itself, which has been in place and collecting property tax revenue since it was established about 13 years ago. The city will use the funds to hire traffic and planning consultants to advise city officials on development projects for the 34.5-acre area in the northwest quadrant of the Page and I-270 interchange. In 1997, HBE Corp. proposed building a 550-room hotel and 200,000-square-foot office buildings on the site, and the city council approved a TIF for the redevelopment plan. The area was inaccessible, so HBE built a road on the property. But HBE backed out of the development…
