Great Streets Grand Center Master Plan

St. Louis, Missouri

Grand Center is the pulse of arts and entertainment in St. Louis, Missouri. As a recipient of a Great Streets Project grant, leaders of the district worked with Christner + Hoerr Schaudt to develop a vision and implementation plan toward transforming the fabric of the district. The design concept is inspired by the majestic theaters, performance venues, and art galleries and Grand Center’s motto "The Intersection of Art and Life." The team’s plan introduces the idea of the neighborhood as an urban stage, using lighting, wayfinding, and public art to enhance the pedestrian environment, calm traffic, improve safety and attract future development -- making this diverse community a better place to live, enjoy and experience.

Christner lead the multidisciplinary team that developed the analysis and recommendations for the plan. The participatory process was organized around a series of public charrettes that shaped the vision for Grand Center.
