The Chesterfield Hockey Association (CHA) has announced its intention to build a 78,000 sf multi-sport facility on 12 acres in the Chesterfield Valley (full press release below). The idea was first floated in early 2016 immediately after the announcement that the Hardee’s Iceplex would close to make way for a Topgolf entertainment complex.
It is unclear how this project may impact recently unveiled plans to be a four-ice rink complex in Maryland Heights, which would double as the St. Louis Blues’ training facility. That project is being promoted by a group called the St. Louis Ice Legacy Foundation.
For Immediate Release
