Antique shop in Richmond Heights building forced to move

 –  Senior Reporter, St. Louis Business Journal

Jon Paul Designs and Collectibles, a Clayton-based antique shop that has been operating out of a building at the intersection of Clayton Road and Big Bend Boulevard for 25 years, is moving to make way for an urgent care center.

The antique store is relocating to a building down the street, at 1047 South Big Bend Blvd., in early 2018. The new space totals approximately 3,000 square feet, and the building is owned by Adam Crosley.

Brennan Gaffney of Hilliker Corporation helped broker the lease, for which terms were not disclosed. 

Average leasing rates in the mid-county submarket run $17.88 per square foot, according to Gershman Commercial Real Estate research. 

The overall vacancy rate for retail space in the region at the end of the third quarter was at 5 percent, with average asking rents at $12.28 per square foot.

In September, the Business Journal reported Total Access Urgent Care was acquiring the building at 7000 Clayton Road with plans of investing $3 million to tear down the existing structure and construct a new urgent care center, its 19th in the region, on the site. 

Total Access acquired the property in September for $1.67 million from Big Clay LLC, a business entity affiliated with Ken Aston.

Big Clay acquired the building in 2016.

Waldbart Florist, which was founded in 1872, is also being displaced by the new urgent care center, which is expected to open in July.
