St. Louis Port-North Riverfront
St. Louis, Missouri
The North Riverfront of St. Louis extends several miles from downtown to the city limits and encompasses some 3,000 acres of primarily industrial and heavy transportation operations along the Mississippi River. Development Strategies was on a team headed by HNTB Engineers. DS conducted a business inventory, determined the needs of the thriving firms for growth and transportation movements, evaluated regional industrial development strengths and forces, recommended how the North Riverfront could capture some of those forces, and evaluated appropriate economic development incentive and financing programs.
One of our products was a “full build-out-scenario” over time based on market forces and the land uses most appropriate for the location and policies developed for the plan. We also drafted a marketing plan and strategic actions to help the St. Louis Development Corporation with promoting the North Riverfront over the long run.
