An ice arena is also part of a plan being proposed by Hat Trick Consultants, a Texas-based company that also recently proposed a replica of the old St. Louis Arena on the former Chrysler site in Fenton.
Hat Trick is looking to develop a 6,200-seat arena that would attract a AA-level professional hockey franchise in a major development league for the NHL. The arena, which would likely require public financing, would also host 125 other events per year, according to the proposal.
If approved by Maryland Heights officials, the project, which also includes a business park, hotel and various retailers, could be ready by summer 2018.
