A local architect is pitching an alteration and exterior renovation of Clayton High School’s Adzick Field that would transform the 195,000 square-foot site into a multi-use facility replete with synthetic turf and additional updates to the entire facility.

The multi-purpose artificial turf field will allow Adzick Field to host a number of high school athletic events, including baseball, softball and field hockey, according to the proposal. It has been used by the high school baseball team for several years.

The Clayton Plan Commission is slated to conduct an architectural review for the project at 5:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

The plan also calls for new dugouts, a new concession stand/press box building with restrooms, additional bleachers, new lights and a new scoreboard.

The 195,000 square-foot site is located southwest of Clayton High School, adjacent to Shaw Park. A portion of the project area is on city property.

Discussions are ongoing for an agreement regarding use of city property. The proposed project has remained on the agenda because the request is for review of the design and materials of the project. However, an agreement will need to be in place before any construction permits are issued.

The property is zoned R-2 Single Family Dwelling District and the site is currently made up of a grass baseball field with metal viewing bleachers. The existing property is an accessory to the existing school and park.

The proposed project consists of the installation of a synthetic turf field in the same location as the existing baseball field, new fence enclosure, new dugout structures and the construction of a 913 square-foot, 2-story concession stand/press box. The height of the proposed building is 27 feet.

The new scoreboard will be designed and reviewed at a future date.

According to the plans, an 8-foot, black chain link fence will be used to enclose most of the field. The metal fence design is similar to the fencing along the two baseball field located east of the subject field.

Safety netting ranging in height from 16 feet to 32 feet is proposed along the southeast and west sides of the field. The safety netting is specifically designed for athletic fields.

 A 2 1/2 foot tall red cordova stone CMU wall with safety netting measuring 32 feet tall will wrap home plate, between the dugouts.

The dugouts and concession stand/press box will be constructed of red and beige brick, cast stone, cordova stone and a metal roof.

The applicant also proposes to replace the current field lights. The new lights will go in the same locations, but will feature upgraded lights with shields.

The estimated cost for the project or estimated time for construction was not disclosed.

The Clayton Plan Commission and Architectural Review Board is set to review the plan during its May 21 meeting.

According to documents submitted to the city, the applicant behind the project is Erik Wilson with St. Louis-based Bond Architects.

New Coffee Shop

Under plans filed with the city, Adrian Turnell is requesting a conditional use permit to open The Drunken Bean coffee shop at 222 S Meramec Ave.

The restaurant, which will be located on the ground floor of the Century Building, will be designed as a coffee shop with grab and go food, such as salads and sandwiches.

The building sits at approximately 778 square feet and will have a maximum of 16 occupants. The Drunken Bean will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
