Ground breaks on hotel and sports complex in Belleville

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

Ground broke Tuesday on a huge complex in Belleville that will feature a hotel, convention center, and a Hofbrauhaus restaurant.

The complex, which will be located across from the Our Lady of the Snows Shrine, will also include an 11-field soccer complex. Nine fields will have artificial turf, allowing for games to be played in bad weather.

“What this does economically is it opens the Route 15 corridor. It will allow us once again to have a convention center where there will be meetings, weddings, banquets and conventions,” said Belleville Mayor Mark Eckhert.

The complex was originally supposed to be built in Chesterfield Valley, but the site did not have sewer service.
