CityPark – design description
It's already the third concept for St. Louis' MLS stadium in just 3 years. It retains the previously expected capacity between 22,500 and 25,500 fans. What changes is a key fact: location. Though still within close proximity to Union Station and along the representative Market Street, the stadium was moved to its north side. Space released in the south would in turn be used to fit two full-sized training fields.
Of all three concepts released since 2016, this one foresees by far the most static, classic volume. Its most distinctive feature would be how its south stand detaches from the remainder, both in terms of seating and the roof.
Within this heavily glazed part of the stadium, just behind the seating, a long pavilion is planned, able to serve as complimentary hospitality facilities for matchdays or an independent event venue for a couple hundred people.
In line with principles set initially, the seating bowl aims to provide all fans with good view of the field. The furthest seat would still be within 37 meters (120 feet) from the field. All of the lower tier would be sunken as field level is planned 12 meters (40 feet) below surrounding public areas.
New Stadium: CityPark finally opened!
The new football facility in St. Louis was originally scheduled to be inaugurated as early as September this year. Unfortunately, the opening was delayed due to power problems. On November 16, a participant in this year's UEFA CL, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, came to the city in the state of Missouri, to face St. Louis City S.C. reserves.
