Major League Soccer in Richmond Heights?Return to Blog
Saint Louis Urban Workshop had a post on Friday about a proposal to locate a Major League Soccer stadium in Richmond Heights, 1,000 feet from the MetroLink station. The proposed development includes not just the soccer stadium, but also a new hotel and 400,000 square feet of new office space and retail, plus 250 “unique” residential units (whatever that means). There’s a lively discussion in the comments over there, which seems to have focused on two things: The amount of parking shown in the rendering, and whether the developers should instead work with the Rams to renovate the Jones Dome and host MLS downtown instead. Drop by and let them know what you think.
