Nearly seven years after the new Busch Stadium opened, the Cardinals have set a date to start construction on the empty lot next door known as Ballpark Village.
And that date is next Friday.
The team announced Wednesday that it will hold on Feb. 8 a formal groundbreaking of a $100-million first phase of the long-awaited project, which was part of its development deal with the city for its new ballpark.
