St. Louis Is Turning Abandoned Areas Into Award-Winning Greenways


Chouteau Greenway Design Competition was used to seek proposals for how best to connect a stretch of St. Louis between the city's Foster Park and the Gateway Arch, according to their press release. 

Winners Stoss Landscape Urbanism won with a proposal titled “The Loop + The Stitch,” which includes plans for an “east-west Loop” that goes through the city’s downtown, then intersects with a “north-south Stitch,” which will begin in St. Louis' Fairgrounds Park and Tower Grove Park. Non-profit Great Rivers Greenway and their partners want to commission the project to be part of an entire network of greenways throughout the city.
