Approving an amendment to an approved 58.4 acre development plan in District UR by removing about 42.9 acres (the Antioch Mall) site which is generally bounded by N.E. Vivion Road on the south, N. Antioch Road on the west and Chouteau Trafficway on the east and north and approving a development plan for the 42.9 acre area and further leaving in place the development plan for the remaining 15.5 acre surrounding area. (6485-UR-18)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
City Planning and Development addressed the Committee. On March 2, 2006, the City Council rezoned the Antioch Shopping Center (6485-URD-16) area and some of the area surrounding the center to district URD (Urban redevelopment district). The area surrounding the center was also included in the URD (Urban redevelopment district) zone because; 1) it was also a part of the approved Tax Increment Financing (TIF) area, and 2) it was not within an existing “planned district”. The Antioch Mall TIF was approved by the TIF Commission on April 13, 2005 with Resolution No. 4-15-05. In policy agreements with the Economic Development Corporation proposed financial incentive areas are to be rezoned to District URD to allow the City Plan Commission, City Council and public the ability to review proposed land use and design issues. The Zoning Ordinance states that URD is the appropriate zone for tax incented projects. In 2006, the primary developer for the project was Eastbourne Investments Ltd., which owned the Antioch Mall site and property east of Chouteau Trafficway and north of Vivion Road. Eastbourne bought the Antioch Shopping Center from Curry Investment Co. in 2002. The proposed TIF area however included parcels outside of the Eastbourne ownership, such as Sunfresh, Hayes Hamburger, Fusion Nighclub, Firestone, Shell Gas Station, Blockbuster Video, Walgreens, K-Mart, previous Bill Woods Ford, QuikTrip, Advance Auto, Brogoto’s Auto and Truck Center, Antioch Muffler, Taco Bell, Tires Plus and Earl May (now Chouteau Pawn).
