Wildwood City Hall Takes Shape
Construction of the new Wildwood City Hall on the western edge of Town Center is progressing in a very noticeable manner now. Have you been by there lately?
For anyone going to a B&B Theatres Wildwood 10 movie or staying at The Wildwood Hotel, it is hard not to notice the new construction occurring between these two landmarks in the western corner of Town Center at the address for Wildwood's new City Hall: 16860 Main St.
Last fall, Wildwood city council members awarded a $5.9 million contract to K&S Associates to build a new city hall and police facility on city-owned property there. K&S Associates presented the lowest bid for the project among 10 responding contractors.
The new facility was approved by voters during April 2010, after residents from each of the city's wards served on a volunteer City Hall Steering Committee and after a series of public forums were held about the project to gain residents' ideas and feedback.
The new building will replace the currently leased city hall at 183 Plaza Drive and the St. Louis County Police Department-Wildwood (6th) Precinct office at 17014 D New College Ave.
Project architects are the Wildwood Collaborative composed of Powers Bowersox Associates, Dennis Tacchi & Associates, John C. Guenther, Architect, and helmuth + bicknese architects.
City staffers hope to move in by March 2013.
