Frontenac aldermen delay vote on new home project until revisions are made

The developer of what began as a $60 million residential proposal on the site of the former Ladue Early Childhood center on Clayton Road will return to the Frontenac Board of Aldermen with a reduced version of the plan next month, they say.

The Pulte Group can expect another sharply opposed group of residents.

Pulte representatives said after an hour’s discussion Tuesday night they would like to return with a plan that drops townhomes from the proposal, but retains villas as well as an assisted living facility with 86 beds, although the latter would be moved to the east part of the 11-acre site. The site is west of the city complex and southeast of the Interstate40-Spoede Road overpass. The project would be known as Frontenac Square and The Grove in Frontenac.Frontenac Ladue New Homes For Sale

More than 100 people opposed the plan at a January public hearing; about 30 attended Tuesday night’s meeting, and repeated often their contention that the plan is too dense for the site, which has always been one-acre per family. Traffic from residents, visitors and employees would be too much, they say.

The aldermen voted 5-1 to delay their decision until hearing the new plan. But Mayor Kenneth Krieg, referring to several months of meetings with the Planning and Zoning Commission, said the new plan “is the end of it,” as far as the city is concerned.

Alderman Tom O’Brien said in his view the project also deserved to be turned down immediately.

Pulte reportedly has an option to buy the site, last used by the school district in 2011. The center, at 10601 Clayton Road, was replaced by a new childhood center on Ladue Road in Creve Coeur. Two one-acre lots were added to the Frontenac site when the proposal seeking planned development use was made last spring to the Planning and Zoning Commission.

The density of the plan was reduced through several meetings with the commission over the past nine months, and the plan was eventually endorsed by the commission.
