CITYARCHRIVER LEGACY

Framing a Modern Masterpiece

Five decades after the completion of the Gateway Arch, the site remained kind of an island, severed from the rest of the city by busy highways, and disconnected from the Mississippi River. Acknowledging this, the National Park Service created a new general management plan for the Arch grounds in 2009, the first such update in 40 years. The same year, The City + The Arch + The River 2015: Framing a Modern Masterpiece International Design Competition was launched. An immense public private project began in 2013 when CityArchRiver Project partners broke ground on a new plan to reimagine, connect, enhance, and transform the Arch and surrounding park for future generations.
