Southeast Missouri

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s task force released a new round of stadium and property renderings by HOK in St. Louis on March 2, 2015. The new renderings reflect input received over the past seven weeks from the NFL and St. Louis Rams, as well as stakeholders in the project including Ameren, the Terminal Railroad Association, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and others. The task force is developing plans for an open-air NFL stadium project on the North Riverfront of downtown St. Louis that could be the new home for the Rams, as well as related enhancements to the Edward Jones Dome and America’s Center convention facility.
