— After years of delays, Ballpark Village is finally in the works.

The St. Louis Cardinals are breaking ground Friday on the $100 million first phase of the project that will be developed on the site of the old Busch Stadium that sits adjacent to the new one that opened in 2006.

Ballpark Village was part of the development agreement between the city and the Cardinals when the new stadium was built, but the project has been delayed by the weak economy and redesigns.

Phase one will include a two-block entertainment complex. The project received $17 million in state and city incentives. The Cardinals hope to open Ballpark Village in time for Opening Day in 2014.
