New St. Louis NFL Stadium Renderings â€¨Unveiled by Task Force in Presentation to NFL
ST. LOUIS, MO 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, Missouri, recently unveiled new architectural renderings as well as an animated fly-through of the proposed stadium during a presentation to league executives and team owners at the NFL's headquarters in New York City, New York.
Representing the task force were Co-Leads Dave Peacock and Bob Blitz, Developer's Representative John Loyd, and HOK Design Principal Eli Hoisington.
The task force shared the video and latest renderings from HOK and spoke about several details of interest to the committee and league, including the stadium design, construction team, project schedule and more.
The new set of renderings includes aerial depictions from the north and south, daytime and evening illustrations, exterior and interior, examples of surrounding plaza areas, green space, the connection to trails and usages for FIFA or Major League Soccer matches, and an amphitheater-style setting for concerts. For soccer matches, retractable seating in the corners would accommodate a FIFA-regulated field of 120 yards long by 75 yards wide.
The presentation to the NFL represented a second milestone for the St. Louis stadium effort. It was announced that Hunt Construction Group/Clayco would 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 Group.
St. Louis-based Kwame Building Group will join the project to provide project management support services. Loyd said HKCL will comply with the task force's mandate of targeting a workforce employing 25 percent MBE contractors, 5 percent woman-owned firms and 3 percent disabled veterans.
