Clayco Completes Niche/Pastaria Restaurants are First Retailers Located in New Centene Plaza Development
ST. LOUIS (September 30, 2012) – Clayco, Inc. has recently completed the construction of Niche/Pastaria in Clayton, Mo. Niche recently moved from its former location in the Benton Park neighborhood to Centene Plaza. Pastaria, a new concept by Craft Restaurants Ltd., is located next door to Niche.
The location in urban, downtown Clayton provided some challenges to builders because of tight physical constraints. Improvements were made to the existing infrastructure of the building site to accommodate a restaurant and retail space. Structural aspects of the interior were enhanced by creating a second-floor mezzanine dining area.
This new location is expected to create a number of jobs in the Clayton area because of increased seating capacity.
“Niche and Pastaria are both great additions for the Clayton downtown business district,” said Project Director, Jim Mundy. “Clayton is such a thriving area; it only makes sense to have such great restaurants there.”
Partners in this project included Space Architects, Craft Restaurants Ltd. and Centene.
