The new Sunset Hills store will now occupy the entire mall at 3600 S. Lindbergh Boulevard.
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – The Bass Pro Shops location that’s under construction is getting bigger, even before it opens.
The new store in Sunset Hills, originally planned which will open in the second half of 2022, will now occupy the entire mall at 3600 S. Lindbergh Blvd. Sansone Group Broker Grant Mechelen say it business diary.
Development costs for the entire project and the expansion were not immediately available.
Bass Pro will also lease the site alongside its original space, The Tile Shop, which would have been the mall’s only store other than Bass Pro. An agreement has been reached for The Tile Store to terminate its lease early, Mechlin said.
Clayton-based commercial real estate company Sansone Group owns the mall and rented the space to Bass Pro in a deal announced last year. Rental terms were not disclosed, but the average asking rent in South County was $14.23 per square foot in the second quarter, according to Cushman & Wakefield.
Bass Pro Shops did not immediately respond to a question about whether the new addition delays the project’s opening date.
The Tile Shop in Sunset Hills will close Oct. 31, combining operations with its location in Brentwood, a store employee said.
After the original anchor tenant Toys R Us closed in 2018, followed by a Ross Dress for Less which later closed, most of the Shoppes at Sunset Hills Mall were vacant when Bass Pro signed on to the new location .
