A riverfront master plan connecting St. Louis to the river that made it great.
The potential of the constructed urban landscape of the North Riverfront demands an integrated and optimistic approach to creating dynamic and vital public places. The project demands a multi-disciplinary approach to the complex design issues of the contemporary city, global experience in large-scale urban design, architecture, and landscape interventions, and a love for the specific character of St. Louis to bring the potential of the river to life.
To enter the site, the grounds of the St. Louis Arch connect to the North Riverfront trail. An interactive riverfront park builds on the connection. The design of the park promotes wellness, incorporates innovative storm water techniques, and includes inventive programming. The park master plan creates value for existing historic resources and entices development along its edges. A development strategy integrates opportunities for sustainable, mixed use development. The plan creates a vision for an urban landscape of parks and adjacent infill development to connect Laclede’s Landing, the Casino and Hotel, the Arch Grounds, and the City to the riverfront in exciting new ways.
