Architects reveal plans for proposed St. Louis stadium

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The architects of a new football stadium in St. Louis are planning an arena that will offer more than just football games.

Eli Hoisington, with St. Louis-based HOK architects, told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch the stadium would have plazas, gardens, bike trails, a three-story brew pub and an observation deck overlooking the Mississippi River.

Hoisington and marketing principal Lance Cage said the design was influenced by constraints of the site. For example, sunken nearby railways required bridges leading into the stadium and the river made sound and light screens necessary.

Gov. Jay Nixon and the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority are trying to get a new stadium built for the Rams to stop owner Stan Kroenke from moving the team to Los Angeles.
