St. Louis NFL Stadium – design description
This stadium proposal was drawn in response to deadlock over optimum renovation scheme for Edward Jones Dome. A brand new NFL-specific stadium would be placed roughly 500 meters away from the dome, along a revitalized part of Mississippi riverfront.
Capacity is expected to reach 64,000 in a traditional three-tier layout. Around half of that capacity would be available for smaller events, like football/soccer games. Altogether the stadium would offer some 9,500 business seats in open suites and in the stands, along with some 480 seats in 60 skyboxes. 10,439 parking spaces would fit around the stadium.
Financing is to come from public resources (one half) and from sale of corporate seats and individual seat licenses (other half). Entir budget of the project should be within the range of $ 860-985 million.
It’s not clear whether St. Louis Rams would be the team playing host here as the franchise owner Stan Kroenke is considering a move to Los Angeles.
