Like many things this year, the unexpected took over strictly scheduled plans. While the pandemic may have halted vacations, graduations, concerts, and other large gatherings, it also impacted the world of construction. Lack of resources, changes of weather, and safety of workers all had to be kept in mind while proceeding with The District’s construction in Chesterfield off I-64.
What started as a skeletal-like building has begun to really take shape in promises of opening in 2021. The District hopes to transform the Chesterfield Valley experience with an open-air, mixed-use gathering space and entertainment center for visitors and locals. With businesses and restaurants hoping to take residency in 2022, construction is trucking along day by day throughout the unexpected nine months of quarantine and global pandemic. Many locals have been watching the transformation gradually on their daily commute or on their bike route. Pop-up events like The Crafted Corner every Sunday from 9am-2pm have also increased attention on the new site.
Moving forward, the website and social media exposure has helped excite anxious followers of what is to come. Their slogan (Eat. Play. Rock.) feeds off of the amenities the space will soon offer: exquisite dining, the Main Event – a 50,000 square foot indoor entertainment venue with bowling, rock climbing, laser tag, mini golf, arcade games, billiards, and gravity ropes, and The Factory – a 52,000 square foot concert venue that will be one of the finest in the country. Get excited!
