"We understand the impact this intersection has on the surrounding businesses and the accessibility of visitors to the area," said developer Edward (Ted) J. Koplar, President and CEO of Koplar Properties. "We added street crews and overtime shifts in order to make the Central West End fully accessible for the 80,000 people coming to St. Louis this weekend."

"The completion of this initial phase of construction is a sign of first-class things to come, something which surrounding residents and businesses have so patiently waited for," noted Sam Koplar, son of developer Ted Koplar and VP of Business Development for Koplar Properties.

News | Maryland Plaza

Ted Koplar has reached a deal with Levy Restaurants to bring a high-end destination restaurant to the Central West End.

...
"I have known Larry Levy since our days together at Ladue High School, and I know that working with the company that he founded, Levy Restaurants, will be an integral piece in making our vision for Maryland Plaza a reality, creating a place that is a destination," Ted Koplar said.
...
"Ted Koplar has come up with the Maryland Plaza refurbishment, which we think is just in a spectacular spot."
...
Koplar is overseeing a $20 million retail, office and entertainment redevelopment of Maryland Plaza, between Euclid and Kingshighway. St. Louis approved $3.8 million in tax increment financing for public improvements for the project.
When Koplar approached WET Design about a year and a half ago, he set two conditions for the new fountain: one, that it be more attraction than a landmark; and two, that it be pedestrian-friendly. The old fountain was not accessible to the public unless you crossed the street to get to it - and not too many folks did that.
"We had a fountain there," Koplar said.
...
Said Koplar: "When you come to the Central West End, it's going to be really special."
...
"Chase Park Plaza certainly has an emotional attachment," says Edward (Ted) J. Koplar, president and CEO of Koplar Properties. "But the whole idea of that neighborhood, knowing what it was and what it could be, was very intriguing."
Koplar has recently closed on the former Greenberg Van Doren Gallery Building and the Medical Arts Building, which line up neatly with the former Saks Building he inherited in the 1970s. The properties are located on the south side of Maryland Avenue, between Kingshighway Boulevard and York Street. Koplar envisions trendy, street-level retail in all three properties, topped with two stories of high-tech office space.
Before solidifying the $20 million redevelopment plans, Koplar visited similar developments in other cities. He discovered that developers and builders across the nation were trying to recreate the feel that already existed in the Central West End.
"The beauty about the Central West End is that we already have what they're trying to build," Koplar says. "It's just a matter of reshaping and recreating an ambience that was once there in the past. We've just got to bring it back again."

"If this street is in its current condition, it's going to be awfully hard to (create the kind of conditions we need)," Ted Koplar says.
The street's trademark fountain will be torn down and replaced with a new, grander one, closer to the sidewalk. The uneven and virtually undrivable cobblestones of the street will be replaced by colored granite pavers.
"This is going to be a community street," Koplar continues. "There will be somebody who is totally devoted to promotions and happenings. Whether we bring in choral groups, or ice carving championships, street entertainment...there will always be something happening."
Koplar has attempted to develop the property for years, but was held back by a dearth of parking.
...
Koplar also has his sights set on developing housing in the neighborhood, as well. Phase II of his plan involves the properties on the west side of York Street-which he has already purchased. Additionally, he recently reacquired the Lindell Boulevard building in which his former television station, KPLR-TV (Channel 11), was located, along with the apartment building next door.
...
The new Maryland Plaza will change that, Koplar thinks, and he says people from the entire region will take note.
"We hope it will be a destination," he says.
