Peacock and Blitz Unveil Study for New St. Louis NFL Stadium
JANUARY 9, 2015 — A concept for a new NFL stadium in St. Louis has been unveiled by Dave Peacock and Bob Blitz, who were appointed by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to lead a task force to study a NFL stadium project on the North Riverfront area of downtown St. Louis that could be the new home for the St. Louis Rams.
HOK and 360 Architecture’s plan re-engages St. Louis as a city linked to the Mississippi River, while simultaneously reaching out to the heart of downtown. This approach proposes bridging I-44 to keep the Edward Jones Dome as a vital piece of the new district, while extending connections to the currently expanding Great Rivers Greenway network and CityArchRiver grounds development along the river.
This connection of open spaces spans into the river, allowing for the game-day experience to extend in every possible manner along the riverside trail. Adjacent opportunities allow for potential retail and mixed-use developments around the stadium, enabling growth and the continued revitalization of downtown St. Louis.
