St. Charles project aims at reversing 200 years of overlooking the potential of riverfront development.
Over the next five years, this $350 million development will revitalize 120 acres along the Missouri River at Interstate 70 and Main Street. With a 30-acre riverside lake, the new waterfront between the Ameristar casino and the Family Arena would be available for office space, retail, hotels, and residential developments.
Like CRG, LJC, and Clayco’s Wildhorse Village project in Chesterfield, life at Riverpointe will revolve around the waterfront between the mainland and a 160-acre Missouri River barrier island called Bangert Island. It’s a county park permanently shielded from development by covenants designed to preserve its natural state.
All the structures will surround a central plaza with a “Riverwalk” path constructed along the lakefront for public access, with an amphitheater hosting events and a pedestrian bridge leading to Bangert Island. In addition, the nearby expanse of the Katy Trail, the popular statewide bike path, will be rebuilt to capitalize on the water access.
