ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- As the new construction phase continues at Ballpark Village, a new tenant was announced Wednesday.
During a press conference, officials confirmed Salt + Smoke will bring their St. Louis-styled BBQ to downtown St. Louis next year.
The restaurant chain has locations in the Central West End, St. Charles, Hampton, and Delmar.
The announcement coincided with the topping of One Cardinal Way, a 29-story residential building which is the first major addition to the St. Louis skyline in about three decades.
Officials say One Cardinal Way is 50 percent leased ahead of its summer 2020 opening and its construction created 1,500 job.
Salt + Smoke plans to open in June.
