Kirkwood Council Gives Initial OK to Turning Shop ‘N Save Into Storage, Retail Complex

By on January 22, 2019

From St. Louis Post-Dispatch:  The Kirkwood City Council gave initial approval Thursday night to plans for the redevelopment of the former Shop ‘n Save property at 10461 Manchester Road.

A final vote is set for Feb. 7.

Plans by developer Nolan Real Estate Interests LLC for the 8.6-acre site include:

  • Reusing the 122,000-square-foot former grocery on about three acres to house a two-story, drive-through enclosed self-storage facility with a resident manager’s apartment and 7,500 square feet of retail space on the first floor.
  • Having a fenced-in parking lot, in the rear of the property, to store overflow new and used car inventory, for use by the Audi Kirkwood auto dealership.
  • Constructing a 12,000-square-foot multi-tenant retail building and a 2,700-square-foot restaurant with drive-thru at the front of the property on Manchester Road.

The Shop ‘n Save closed in November. It was one of numerous stores closed or sold to Schnucks Markets by Supervalu Holdings Inc. This site is on Kirkwood’s border with Warson Woods and Huntleigh.

The developer had abandoned former plans for the site that would have included a four-story building for either an apartment complex or a senior living facility, with town homes in the rear.
