Kiener Plaza Project

Kiener Plaza Guest Services Building

With the goal of ensuring an excellent visitor experience, we have been working with the community to design and build a new guest services building on Kiener Plaza.  It will be constructed with CityArchRiver funds set aside exclusively for this project area.  The building will include a workspace for on-site security and provide storage and support space for site maintenance and programs.  The Jefferson National Parks Association (JNPA) is working with us to explore feasibility of a small retail outlet and Explore St. Louis is evaluating staff needs to provide visitor information.

The 600 square foot building will be constructed with  pre-cast concrete panels  on the north side of Kiener Plaza. The south facade will be painted a vibrant green- the color selected by the community during the Fall 2019 engagement and survey.
