A rival to Ballpark Village's crater?


View Larger Map

(Zoom in where the marker is placed to see the site.)

The city says it's owned by Anheuser-Busch.

A little research on the address turns up the St. Louis "Everman Quarry". It's also on a list of Missouri Superfund sites--the list that the Environmental Protection Agency creates to document extremely contaminated sites that require remediation.

What is this place? Does anyone know? Are there any plans for it?

If you can't tell on the map, it's bounded by Virginia on the west, Delor on the north, Walsh on the south, and Michigan on the east.

Can anyone help me out?

When we bought our property by it, we were told it was essentially a giant mulch pile from the waste from the brewery.

As far as I know, A-B is cleaning up the property and I have heard that it will be made into a park.

Thanks for the information. That was quick! I can't help but wish this site could sew back together the street grid, complete with houses and businesses. As a nearby resident, are you happy about the idea of the park?
