A Love’s Travel Stops opening today is the first business to get underway in a north St. Louis area city officials hope to redevelop.
The all-night truck stop, at Interstate 70 and North Broadway, will have a McDonald’s, a tire center and other facilities when fully open. A formal ribbon cutting is scheduled for Jan. 14.
Green Street Development Group, of Clayton, is behind redevelopment of the area the city plans to revive as part of north riverfront renewal. In 2011, the city’s St. Louis Development Corp. allocated federal New Market’s Tax Credits to the Love’s project.
Love’s, based in Oklahoma City, also got help from the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment in hiring local workers.
