We are in the homeland of the Osage Nation,
Missouria, Otoe, Iowa people, and Sac and Fox
Nation. Born visitors upon a land many of us
have only known, and call home. Where the
Mississippi runs through, so bridges were built
to ensure our connection.
Just as the winds blow from the north, south,
east, and west, we must now create and crossnew paths to celebrate our past, present, and
what’s to come. Allow movement to flow us
into one another’s histories. Hold in our hands,
nature native to this space, the culture created
within and throughout, interwoven with a
spirit growing.

“Where the Mississippi runs through, so bridges were built
to ensure connection.”
This project is all about connection – connecting people
to nature, to one another and to future potentials. Inspired
by the input and enthusiasm of community members
who described St. Louis as a City of Neighborhoods, the
Greenway should be more than just a trail – it should be
a connector, a thread that stiches and ties, an ecological
corridor, an economic generator, a “river” that brings
energy, vitality and equity to the urban mosaic.

Toward this end, we propose not one thread, but three
intertwined corridors that fold and braid to join and bind
together the fabric of the City: Chouteau Greenway Braid.
The first of these is “The Green Line,” a soft ecological
corridor featuring a restored Prairie meadow along its entire
length, while supporting continuous bicycle and pedestrian
experiences of nature, health and wellbeing. The second is
“The Social Line,” a more urban sequence of spaces woven
through with culture, art, education, infrastructure and civic
life. Here we propose an alignment that emphatically helps
to bridge and repair the division north and south of Delmar,
creating a 2-mile long Delmar Main Street as a strategy for
investment in bike/pedestrian pathways, recreation, transit,
open space, and economic development that is cognizant
of both micro-market conditions and land ownership. The
third line is the existing MetroLink corridor, in recognition of
the crucial role that transit plays in bringing regional scale
accessibility and mobility into the main Greenway Braid. As
with the individual strands of a braid, these three lines work
together to strengthen and enhance each other, resulting
in a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

In addition, we propose over 6-miles of north-south
Connectors that reach deeper into the city fabric to further
connect neighborhoods to the central corridor and make
critical links to the larger regional trail and park network.
Three new bridges and a series of underpasses allow for
safe and inspired crossings over and under the spaghetti
of highways and rail lines that divide the central corridor.
Together, this 22-mile braided system supports multiple
journeys and experiences, working to stitch the city
together, east to west, north to south, over and under.

A number of memorable places proposed along the
Greenway Braid build off of existing resources and proximity
to technology and innovation, arts and culture, education
and health, natural resources and industrial heritage.
“Forest Porch” and “Forest Lounge” create welcoming
entries into Forest Park and provide a strong connection
to Washington University and existing transit hubs. An
abandoned rail trestle over Vandeventer is reused as a new
“Arts Trestle”, featuring an elevated greenway on top and
artist and maker studios underneath.

Four distinct development nodes introduce Plug-in Parks
and Creative Commons to enliven Delmar as a new Main
Street. A 26-acre “Railyards Park” includes an 800m long
recreational track and art mural, an Overlook and Glade
Garden, and a Prairie Channel that filters stormwater.
A 12-acre downtown tract becomes a new “Performance
Park” showcasing both ecological and social performance
including large meadows, rain gardens, a terraced
amphitheater for outdoor performances, and a skate
park under the highway. Finally, a 360 degree-panoramic
“Mississippi Overlook” hovers within the MacArthur Bridge
structure, revealing dramatic new views to the River and
Arch and highlighting an accessible connection across the
Interstate and down to the existing Mississippi Greenway.

All in all, the project aspires to re-connect the neighborhoods
and communities of St Louis, to bring new life and vitality
to how people relate to nature, to one another and to civic
life. Chouteau Greenway Braid is the tissue that binds,
“interwoven with a spirit growing.”
