Citywalk News for May 2014

Spring has sprung on CityWalk and the festivities have begun.

Were you at the Plaza at 501 for the Food Truck event? It was awesome. There were five trucks stationed around 501 serving up their fare. A Slice of Italy, Steak Louie, Shell Coastal Cuisine, and Andrew’s Bayou Ribs and to finish off a wonderful meal from whichever truck you chose, Sarah’s Cake Shop. There was a large gathering of our neighbors as well as our area business neighbors. All of the Food Truck vendors were happy with the event, even with the threat of inclement weather. All in all, this event was a success, and with this success, you can count on more Food Truck events. I will tell you this, from here on, I brake for cupcakes.

Our first concert at the Plaza at 501 was Samba Boom. If the turnout for the concert was as successful as the food truck event, it was great. Just remember, we have a lot more concerts to come. Concerts that will be featured during the month of May include Einstein. Einstein is a group of musicians that have been traveling the musical circuit for many years. Classic rock, old school R&B and the Blues will be on the menu when Einstein takes the stage at the Plaza at 501 on May 9th. A local group that has been playing around Ferguson and the entire St. Louis area will grace the stage on May 23rd. Our own Chuck Henson will be leading the band from behind his congas holding the beat together while they perform in the genres of R&B, Classic Rock and Funk. If you like that old time rock and roll, these two groups’ performances won’t let you down.

More concerts this month will coincide with the event of events right here in Ferguson. That’s right; I’m talking about the Live Well Twilight 5K, 10K, and One Mile Fun Run. Every year, Live Well has exceeded their goal with the tremendous turn outs that they have received, and being the only organized twilight run in North County, I’m sure they will do it again. You have probably been seeing a lot of people running on the streets, training to get their shoes prepared to run another 3.1 or 6.2 or even one mile. This is the premier Event in Ferguson, even if you’re not a runner. Mark your calendar and come on down to the Plaza at 501 on May 17th and join in on the festivities. You know I’ll be walking down The Walk, CityWalk, to run the 5K.

You’re thinking . . . did this columnist forget to tell us who the entertainment might be for this great event! Of course not! I was just whetting your appetite. The pre-run entertainment will be Palm Duo, featuring the island sounds that can only be produced by Steel Drums. You can count on those steel drums to put a little more spring in your shoes before the beginning of the run. Then for the main event, everyone’s favorite entertainer, Javier Mendozza, will be burning up the stage during the evening, after the run. May 17th at The Plaza at 501.

There are lots of things happening on The Walk, and you don’t want to be left out. So, lace up your walking shoes, and walk on down. We’ll be looking for you.

Citywalk News for April 2014

It’s April and during the many walks around town, I’ve seen a lot of new growth. The trees are budding, flowers are popping their heads to the surface and the birds are singing. Even while walking the Walk, CityWalk, you’ll see lots of growth along the Downtown District.

This month I would like to introduce you to the new businesses that are going to be residing along the CityWalk corridor as well as some business opportunities–if you are looking to stretch your entrepreneurial wings.

Rodney D. Young will be opening an office at 193 N. Florissant Rd., right here on CityWalk.  Young, a pioneer of alternative auto coverage, has been in business since 1952 offering auto insurance with annual, semiannual and monthly packages that anyone can afford.  You will be able to contact them at 314-521-0466.

As we walk along the Walk, you will notice that the windows have been covered up at 27 S. Florissant Rd. (where the Northern Arts Councils Gallery was located).  BKM Fitness will be joining our community helping us develop those good habits that will help everyone LiveWell.

Briant K. Mitchell, BKM’s owner, whose previous location was at Jamestown Mall, is dedicated to help you design and achieve realistic goals in weight loss an better health.  Mitchell explains, “The cardio is plentiful along with nutrition counseling and weight training; a combination of the three will make your body do things you never thought were possible.”  Keep your eyes open for the Grand Opening of BKM Fitness.

Bywater Development Group, led by Ferguson’s own Aaron Burnett, is opening their offices at #8 Church St.. They help communities plan uses for existing buildings through real estate development and consulting services. Talking with Burnett, he explained that they were working with the City of Louisville, KY on an old school building that was built in the early 20th Century.  They are helping to develop the building so that it could be repurposed into affordable housing for the workforce and/or the senior population in that community.  Keep up the good work; we can’t rebuild the buildings of yesterday.

As we continue walking the Walk, we’ve been watching the building at 415 S. Florissant Rd grow from one to two stories.  Now that the final touches have been added, it’s time to put this beautiful building to work for the community.

The Live Work Play Lofts (LWP Lofts) have been available for a few weeks and are preparing for occupation; the first floor is ready for a business opportunity.  Stop by and look in the windows and let your mind’s eye see the possibilities of your new business venture.  If you see Mike Palmer there, I’m sure he would be happy to help you open up the business of your dreams.

There you have it.  There’s a lot of growth on the Walk.  Welcome these new businesses to town and let’s show them that Ferguson is a place where everyone will want to do business.  Don’t forget, April is the beginning of the Concert Series at the Plaza at 501 and the premier of Food Truck Monday is April 21st.  Check out our event calendar for the dates of these events.

Ill be seeing you on the Walk… that’s right, Ferguson Citywalk!

Florissant Road

The Ferguson Citywalk district in historic Downtown Ferguson has been a lively hub of commercial activity for more than a century. Situated on ten pedestrian-friendly blocks along Florissant Rd, Airport Rd and Church St, the district is home to a wide array of restaurants, specialty shops, art & music venues, interesting attractions, and quality service businesses.

Throughout the year, Citywalk hosts some of the best concerts, community festivals, and fine art events in all of St. Louis, including the annual Fourth of July Parade, concerts series from April to October, Northern Lights Celebration, and StreetFest, a two-day gala that draws thousands of music lovers and fun-seekers to Ferguson each September.

Citywalk is also home to the award-winning Ferguson Farmers Market, which is perennially considered one of the best markets in the entire St. Louis region.
