Renovation at Schnucks Would Include Space for New Businesses
The new space would host retail businesses and offices.
The Schnucks located at the corner of Manchester Road and Brentwood Boulevard could be getting a facelift soon.
The property's owner, Regency Center from Cincinnati, OH, submitted an application with the city of Brentwood seeking several renovations. The application has been reviewed by the Brentwood Planning and Zoning Commission, and a subcommittee is expected to continue discussions with the developer during a meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, stated Bola Akande, city administrator for Brentwood, in an email to Patch.
Mayor Pat Kelly first announced the proposed renovation during his State of the City Address last week. In the plan, Schnucks would gain improvements in the interior, building facade, landscaping and 14 new light fixtures.
The addition of a 2,100 square foot building on the northwest corner of the parking lot also is proposed. The space would host retail space and offices. Because of the addition, the site would lose some of its parking spaces.
Any upgrades would mark the first improvements since the building's construction in 1985, Akande said.
As part of the application process, Regency is seeking about five acres of land to be rezoned from general commercial to planned development overlay.
Akande said the rezoning would allow the site to reduce its number of parking spots and add flexibility with development standards. The rezoning would remain consistent with the city's 2006 comprehensive plan, Akande said.
