Three groups make pitches for Chouteau's Landing
Rick Desloge
Three property owners want to transform the neighborhood south of the Gateway Arch into St. Louis' next hot spot. If any of their proposals take off, the area known as Chouteau's Landing could complement Laclede's Landing, and become a second bookend for the Arch grounds.

But the three plans for the area are not entirely compatible.

The trio of competing property owners all hope to take advantage of Chouteau's Landing, which overlooks the Mississippi River. The neighborhood is bordered by Broadway on the west, the Mississippi River on the east, Interstate 64 on the north and Convent Street on the south. The area is close to the new Busch Stadium, though the site also is boxed in on two sides with elevated railroad lines. The frontage facing the Mississippi looks directly at the city's flood wall. The wall and the rail lines will obstruct views for people and businesses on the first four floors, said Dale Ruthsatz, an executive with St. Louis Development Corp., the agency handling the development for the city's Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority (LCRA).
