Great Rivers Greenway is leading a major public-private partnership to establish the conceptual plan for the Chouteau Greenway in St. Louis through this design competition. The goal of the project is to connect the areas of Washington University and Forest Park to Downtown and the Gateway Arch and Mississippi Riverfront. With spurs north and south and many other destinations along the way, the greenway will connect 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. This competition invites designers to think beyond the trail itself to create active, vibrant spaces and destinations along the way. The competition process and resulting conceptual design will help partners determine a plan and schedule for designing, engineering, and building each additional portion of the overall greenway.
Interested design teams can register and download the Competition Manual at www.ChouteauGreenway.org and must submit their qualifications by November 21, 2017 to be considered.
A Jury, comprised of local and international experts, will use the Design Goals to evaluate each design team’s submitted qualifications and recommend four teams to compete in Stage II. Those four teams will be offered an honorarium to work on a conceptual design, which will be reviewed by the public and presented to the Jury in late April 2018. The winning team will finalize their design, completing the program, in June 2018.
