Hazelwood Logistics Center Wins Regional Award

Hazelwood Logistics Center Wins Regional Award

On March 22nd the St. Louis Business Journal hosted their 2018 Building St. Louis Awards.  The awards recognize outstanding renovations and developments that have had an impact in their communities.  Projects were nominated form across the St. Louis region, from O’Fallon, MO to O’Fallon, IL.  They were grouped into six categories based on type of development and amount of investment.

The Hazelwood Logistics Center (HLC) industrial park was one of three winners in the “Public/private project more than $10 million” category. HLC was foreclosed on and in need of environmental clean-up.  NorthPoint Development, from the Kansas City area, purchased the park in 2015.  Since that time they have cleaned up the contamination and constructed six large industrial buildings.  The final two buildings will be completed this spring.  Tenants at HLC include Amazon’s first two Missouri facilities, Quiet Logistics and Bunzl.  NorthPoint will soon begin development of their second project, Hazelwood Trade Port.  This will be a large industrial park, similar to HLC, behind Park 370.

Nathaniel Hagedorn, NorthPoint CEO, called the award a “well-deserved recognition for the City of Hazelwood.” He added that, “the City of Hazelwood has been an outstanding partner, terrifically responsive and a true partner to help grow the economic base of the City.”  Brent Miles of NorthPoint noted the “unbelievable turn around HLC has seen over the last two years and to win the award was a great way to recognize the project.”

Village Square Survey

Hazelwood Studying Future of Village Square Area

The City of Hazelwood is interested in determining what the Village Square shopping center and adjacent properties should look like in the 21st Century.  The city has hired urban consultant PGAV to study the condition of the center and look at the existing market for retail in the area.  The study also includes commercial lots north of the center up to Elm Grove Lane.

An initial report (click here to download) found that the buildings in the study area are obsolescent and in most cases have been losing value.  The report notes, however, that there is market demand for a number of retail uses.  Several of these uses are included in the report.

The city is interested in learning what residents and businesses in Hazelwood think about Village Square.  Please share your memories, questions, comments or suggestions with us by filling out and submitting the form, below.  You may also contact Economic Developer David Cox directly at dmcox@hazelwoodmo.org or 513-5018.
