The owners of the Promenade at Brentwood, DDR, have plans to add 10,000 square feet of retail space at the north end, where the Shane Co. is now.
The proposal involves demolishing the Shane Co. store, and rebuilding.
The Shane Co. has already announced it is relocating to Olivette.
Rordan Shane, of the Shane Co., said in early Oct. that he'd heard about expansion plans, and Shane Co. could have worked around it, but decided to move.
Brian Sullivan, of FRCH Design Worldwide, representing DDR, said there is new tenant interest from soft goods retailers for the new locations.
Brentwood Planning and Zoning met Wednesday night with traffic engineer Lee Cannon from Crawford Bunte Brammeier (CBB) to talk about parking.
Committee chairperson John Geppert said because 10,000 square feet of retail space is being added, parking spaces will be lost.
Cannon said there are large areas in the parking lot between Target and Trader Joe's that are underutilized, but there's a limit of about 300 feet that shoppers will walk to a store.
The committee talked about how to control where employees park to save nearby spaces for customers.
The Brentwood Board of Aldermen will need to approve any plans for the expansion.
