Public hearing set for South County Dogwood Social House

Dogwood proposal also includes retail, self-storage
The Dogwood Social House in Ellisville.

Dogwood Social House is seeking to open a new location in South County.

According to the agenda for the St. County Planning Commission’s Sept. 18 meeting, the restaurant is proposing a new location at 6303 S. Lindbergh Blvd., at the corner of Lindbergh and Concord Road. Real Estate Partners X, LLC is requesting amended C-8 zoning for all C-3 Shopping District permitted uses, including a 28,700-square-foot Dogwood Social House, 22,575-square-feet of additional retail space and a multilevel self-storage facility with a 39,300-square-foot footprint. The location is the site of the former Weekends Only store that closed earlier this year.

In addition to converting the Weekends Only space, the proposal also calls for two new outbuildings fronting Lindbergh – a 3,400-square-foot bank as well as a 6,500-square-foot restaurant.

Dogwood Social House, which originated in Cape Girardeau, has one location in St. Louis County in Ellisville, as well as locations in O’Fallon, Missouri, and O’Fallon, Illinois. The restaurant offers a mix of entertainment and games, such as axe throwing, corn hole, table games and others depending on the location. The proposed location in South County would include eight pickleball courts, according to the commission’s agenda.

The total tract size of the petition is 9.47 acres. It is in the Lindbergh School District and the 6th County Council District.

Another South County-based proposal on the Planning Commission’s Sept. 18 agenda is a proposal for a car dealership on a .33 acre tract at 8525 Morganford Road. Applicant Kawa Shaker is requesting a change from C-2 to C-8 zoning to operate a car dealership from the existing building at the address, including “sales, rentals and leasing of new and used automobiles, including trucks and motorcycles as well as repairs and outdoor storage of said vehicles.”

Shaker’s proposal is in the 6th County Council District and Bayless School District.

The county Planning Commission will hold its public hearings on the above proposals Monday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. in the County Council chambers at the county government building in Clayton, 41 S. Central Ave.

Other zoning news in South County includes the approval of a QuikTrip at the corner of Lindbergh Boulevard and Lemay Ferry Road. The developer has moved into the permit review process.

On Monday at its executive session – after The Call went to press – the Planning Commission reviewed a proposal for a 1st Missouri Credit Union at 1690 Lemay Ferry Road. If approved, it will move into the permit review process.

The vacant Taco Bell at the corner of Tesson Ferry Road and Lindbergh Boulevard, which closed in 2016, may also see new life in the form of a Scooter’s Coffee.

Planning is waiting for a lot consolidation request from two parcels to one to be recorded with the county Recorder of Deeds before that plan can be approved.
