Former Sports Attic lot set to be parking lot; fire cause still “undetermined”

The owner of the vacant lot that was once The Sports Attic (8212 Manchester Road) has asked the city of Brentwood if he could turn it into a temporary parking lot for his private use, a city employee said Wednesday.

The Brentwood plan and zoning commission sub committee will consider the request at a meeting on Wednesday.

The owner, Brentchester LLC, bought the property from Sports Attic owner Joe Droege for $80,000 in 2014, with a possible plan to bring a Taco Bell. Brentchester has the property up for sale.

The Sports Attic was destroyed by a fire in April 2012.

The fire was originally investigated by St. Louis County bomb and arson unit; a follow-up investigation was handled by the Brentwood Police Department. A representative for the county police said that on their end, the fire was classified as “undetermined” (quote marks theirs).
