Chouteaus Landing is a forgotten part of the City of Saint Louis' history. The site is where Auguste Chouteau arrived in Saint Louis after Poerre Laclede. This manufacturing zone was built back when the city was a industrial power house. Now places like this are being neglected. Lacledes Landing was like this at one time but it changed into a vibrant night life area. So why hasn't the same been done to this area? It is forgotten about. Hidden behind railway tracks and highways. It is not the place to go. There is nothing there. Most of the buildings are in horrible condition. Some catch on fire over the summers and are pretty much condemned. So what do I have planned for this area? It all focuses around The area between 1st Street to the East, 3rd Street to the West, Missouri 100 to the South and Plum Street to the North.
1. Replace all streets and infrastructure.
2. If a building in condemned, wreck it and build a new building that looks like it.
3. Add Retail, Restaurants, and museums to the first floors of the buildings
4. All of the upper floors of all buildings would be changed into office, residential or hotel.
5. Buildings that are in good useable condition, they are renovated.
6. Build a nice riverfront amitheater and park that compliments the work done to the Arch grounds
7. The Railway bridges would be repaired to look nice and painted.
This could work because the city needs a plan to get things done here. Right now the city sees this as a eyesore and want something to happen to it, this could very well be it. I believe this could cost anywhere between $100 and $200 Million.
