Gateway Arch

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial By: Amy De La Hunt Photog raphy: Car men Troesser This year marks the completion of a $380-million renovation and construction project throughout the Arch grounds, called the CityArchRiver project. Nearly every aspect of the visitor experience was scrutinized, from the museum to parking lots and walkways. The project serves to connect the Arch to the river on its east side and also to Downtown, on its west. A c c e s s i b i l i t y i m p r o v e m e n t s i n c l u d e a m o r e u s e rfriendly access pathway from Kiener Plaza and t h e O l d C o u r t h o u s e . T h e r e ’s a l s o a n e w o u t d o o r amphitheater on the north end of the park. But some aspects of the experience remain almost unchanged from when the Arch was completed in 1 9 6 5 . T h e b i g g e s t — o r r a t h e r, s m a l l e s t — e x a m p l e is the tram “pods” that carry visitors 630 feet into the air to admire the view from the top of the giant stainless-steel structure. St. Louisans will be able to return to some of their favorite activities on the Arch grounds, including Fair St. Louis over the weekend of July 4. The celebration also marks the unveiling of The Museum at the Gateway Arch, one of the final steps of the renovation project.

Its biggest leap forward came in 2017, when it launched the Fashion Incubator program. The inaugural class has six designers from across the nation, who have come here to build their respective brands.
