Like a giant stairway, the first "step" of shopping at the $120-million Manchester Highlands in Manchester opened its doors in late November. Brinkmann Constructors completed the first phase of what will ultimately be a 550,000-square-foot, three-tired shopping center developed by Pace Properties.
Located on a 70-acre tract of land along Manchester Road at Missouri Highway 141, Brinkmann was tasked to reshape a challenging terrain that falls more than 100 feet from its high point on the north to Manchester Road on the south. It required Brinkmann to move 500,000 cubic yards of dirt and 40,000 cubic yards of rock to create three linked terraces. The center was designed by TR,i Architects.
