Downtown Green Space

Plaza Rendering Available 33 Years Ago

by Michael R. Allen

This rendering shows an envisioned “civic plaza” on the 800 block of Locust. The plan calls for passive space with views of the north elevation of the Old Post Office and a tall, modern high-rise built between the plaza and the Mayfair Hotel.

The date? This plan appeared in the 1974 Downtown Plan, prepared by Downtown St. Louis, Inc.
