A new $80 million mixed-use development, known as Wildhorse, broke ground in downtown Chesterfield last month near the southwest corner of Interstate 64 and Wild Horse Creek Road.
The first phase of Wildhorse includes The Pearl at Wild Horse Creek apartment complex. The complex will include one- and two-bedroom units that begin at approximately 650 square feet and top out at 1,244 square feet. Amenities include surface parking, underground parking garage, a swimming pool and a fitness center. Each unit includes a private balcony that will allow residents to enjoy outdoor space, while also adding depth and dimension to the building.
Following a traffic study, the primary vehicular access point is via full-service curb cut on Wild Horse Creek Road. An on-site pedestrian system is visible around the building. Pedestrian access to the east is defined within the roundabout along with designated areas for pedestrian crossing both north and south of the roundabout. Pedestrian access includes an 8-foot sidewalk within a 12-foot sidewalk easement across the frontage of both Wild Horse Creek and Old Chesterfield roads.
The Planning & Zoning Commission approved phase one of the 22-acre development at its Feb. 20 meeting. Phase two of the project includes 12,500-square-foot retail space, 128-room hotel and conference center, and an upscale restaurant at 16511 Wild Horse Creek Road.
Justin Wyse, Chesterfield’s director of planning and development services, explained that phase two currently is under active development and no specifics can be provided about those additions. However, phase two is expected to continue the aesthetics of phase one to achieve an urban downtown streetscape.
The Pearl at Wild Horse Creek is projected to open early in 2021. General contractor Brinkmann Constructors did not return West Newsmagazine’s request for an interview.
