International Design Competition For Chouteau Greenway Begins

Description
The goal of the project is to connect the areas of Washington University and Forest Park to the Washington University Medical Center & BJC, the Cortex Innovation District, the City Foundry STL and Armory projects, Grand Center Arts District, Saint Louis University, Harris-Stowe State University, Midtown, Downtown and the Gateway Arch and Mississippi Riverfront. With spurs north and south, the greenway will likely stretch 5-7 miles, connecting area neighborhoods, employment centers, parks, transit and dozens of cultural and educational institutions.

The Chouteau Greenway will be part of the overall network of greenways being built by Great Rivers Greenway and partners. The competition invites designers to think beyond the trail itself to create active, vibrant spaces and destinations along the way. The goal is to have the greenway be a dynamic and unique St. Louis experience, similar to the High Line in New York City or the Atlanta Beltline.
