Bring MLS Soccer to St Louis!
Soccer fans in St Louis -Midtown would be the perfect location for a new stadium for our new MLS team! Close to the Central West End, The Grove, & even Downtown...
Come get more scoop on the proposed 20K seat stadium on the north side of Chouteau & west side of Grand. Key = there is a meeting this TUESDAY, THE 18TH at URBAN CHESTNUT -Grove location -at 7 PM to discuss and show more details - be there!
The picture shows the stadium on SLU property on a north-south access -taking it very close to the Grand Metro Station as well as the Lawrence Group's City Foundry project & Cortex, the Central West End, & The Grove.
For more information about the Lawrence Group & The City Foundry project click the photo above...
Are we looking at the perfect potential name tie-in with the team being called CITY FOUNDRY? This would be a big boost to the above mentioned City Foundry entertainment -work -live project now being developed at Spring & Forest Park Avenue ;-)
SLU is apparently on board - SLU President Fred Pestello said Friday that the university had talked with aspiring ownership group Foundry St. Louis and “others” about developing the site - so there may be more than one ownership group interested in such a great location.
From my perspective, the Grand bus line and Metrolink station are all right there for fans from downtown and the suburbs, and then think of all the SLU students + local Fan / Supporter Clubs marching from the Central West End, Midtown, & The Grove to cheer their team on!
See you at the meeting ;-)
