In addition, Olivette also includes multifamily buildings consisting of 4-or more attached residential units as a commercial project.
Commercial projects may include retail shops, restaurants, hotels, medical buildings and facilities, industrial buildings, warehouses, and office buildings. A majority of commercial projects in Olivette will also have a zoning designation consisting of "COR" Commercial/Office/Retail District, "PRO" Planned Residential/Office District, and "LID" Light Industrial District.
The area consist of nearly 14 acres south of Olive Boulevard, between I-170 to Price Road, bounded to the south by Locust Lane and the 100-foot Ameren utility easement and right-of-way north of the Stoneleigh Towers Subdivision. As outlined in the 2006 Olivette Comprehensive Plan: Dynamic Sense of Place, a primary goal of the I-170 Interchange Gateway District is to create an eastern “gateway” into the City and to become an economic catalyst to spur further investment along the Olive Boulevard corridor. The City has engaged Keat Properties, LLC, as the developer of choice. KEAT Properties, LLC is preparing the site for commercial mixed use. Check out the Olivette Gateway Development Plan.
