The task force appointed by Missouri governor Jay Nixon to study and advance plans for a new NFL stadium on the riverfront in downtown St Louis has unveiled new architectural renderings of the proposed stadium during a presentation to league executives and a team owners at the NFL’s headquarters in New York City.
The new renderings include aerial depictions from the north and south, daytime and evening illustrations, the exterior and interior, examples of plaza areas, green space and the connection to trails, and usages for FIFA or Major League Soccer matches and an ampitheater-style setting for concerts. For soccer games, retractable seating in the corners would accommodate a FIFA-regulated field measuring 120 x 75 yards in length and width respectively.
Representing the task force were co-leads Dave Peacock and Bob Blitz, developer’s representative John Loyd and HOK design principal Eli Hoisington, who shared an animated fly-though of the proposed stadium and spoke about the facility’s design, construction team and project schedule.
The presentation follows an earlier announcement that Hunt Construction/Clayco will serve as the construction manager for the project, leading a joint venture branded as HCKL with St Louis-based firms KAI Design & Build and Legacy Building. St Louis-based Kwame Building will join the project to provide project management support services.
