Construction-management firm IMPACT Strategies has completed constructing the first of many buildings to make up University Commons, a Schnucks-anchored mixed-use development being developed by The DESCO Group across from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo.
In summer 2013, IMPACT Strategies’ began site work improvements on approximately 32 acres of urban redevelopment, including demolition of buildings, relocation of utility infrastructure, new site improvements to support the new development, and the building of a new road. The site improvements made way for the development of several retail stores, a new pharmacy, and a 71,000-square-foot Schnucks store, the anchor tenant for the development. Site improvements were completed to support other future out lot and junior anchors in this development.
In October of 2013, IMPACT began constructing Schnucks Lindenwood at University Commons. BRR Architecture designed the store to incorporate a new interior design for Schnucks and its exterior finishes complement the adjacent Lindenwood University. The store is one of numerous Schnucks constructed or remodeled by IMPACT Strategies throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area. The store, along with its attached strip center, opened to the public in August 2014.
