Park-Ride Lot at Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center to Close on May 25

The Park-Ride lot at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center, located at 250 DeBaliviere Avenue, will be closed beginning Monday, May 25, to accommodate the construction of a new transit-oriented development (TOD) project in the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood, Expo at Forest Park. Parking at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center will be unavailable until 2022.

During this period, transit riders who normally park their vehicles at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center are instead encouraged to use the Park-Ride Lot at the Delmar Loop Transit Center, located at 650 Rosedale Avenue.

Bi-State Development is working with a private developer, Tegethoff Development, on Expo at Forest Park, a $90 million TOD project that will include 285 market-rate apartments and 30,000 square feet of anchored retail. Construction on the project will begin in the second quarter of this year, and is scheduled to be completed in 2022. By adaptively reusing underutilized transit infrastructure and real estate at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center, this project will enhance this key area of the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood while also improving the security, amenities and transit experience of Metro riders. Since 2011, more than $9.2 billion in new development has been completed, is under construction or is reasonably committed within a half-mile radius of MetroLink stations.
