ST.LOUIS, MO – Knoebel Construction has completed construction of the $54 million The Shoppes at Mid Rivers in St. Peters, Missouri. The project is the largest mall to be built in St. Charles County since 2008. Developer GBT Realty Corporation of Brentwood, TN estimates the shopping center will employ 750 full and part time employees.

The 270,000-square-foot shopping center includes 14 buildings on 28 acres just north of Interstate 70 and across the highway from Mid Rivers Mall, the only regional mall in St. Charles County. Academy Sports + Outdoor, Burlington, Marshalls, Home Goods, Ulta Beauty, Carter’s-OshKosh B’gosh, Five Below, Famous Footwear and Aspen Dental are open. Ross Dress for Less, Sleep Number, Sprint and World Financial will open early 2018. A few smaller storefronts are available for lease.

The project, which broke ground in March 2017, employed an average of 75 construction workers a day at the St. Peters site. Knoebel divided the work into seven subprojects with separate management teams to meet an expedited schedule so the majority of the stores could open for the holiday shopping season. Approximately 50 subcontractor companies worked on the project. Knoebel is finishing another $20 million GBT Realty Corporation shopping center in Bartlesville, OK.
