St. Louis Exhibition Explores Street Design in Grand Center Arts District

See on Scoop.itUrban Choreography

St. Louis’ Grand Center neighborhood has gone through a lot of changes, and the midtown neighborhood aims “to become the premiere cultural and entertainment tourist destination in the Midwest.

Part of that plan involves sprucing up the urban fabric with a Great Streets Projects grant from the East-West Gateway Council of Governments.

The plan envisions corridors of development and pinpoints several intersections and cross-block connectors that could be activated by public programming to function as “outdoor rooms.”

Trees and green infrastructure are meant to alleviate some of St. Louis’ flooding issues by retaining and filtering stormwater and describes a new catchment area. Branding, wayfinding, lighting, and transportation analyses are also a focus of the plan.
