Get more information and see a video: BioMed 21

Immense new facility to house BioMed 21 research at Washington University Medical Center
Building to be a total of 700,000 square feet


Highlights

The largest building ever constructed on the campus of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis will be the home base for BioMed 21 — the University's innovative research initiative designed to speed scientific discovery and apply breakthroughs to patient care rapidly. The building is supported by a $30 million gift to Washington University's medical school from BJC HealthCare and will be named the BJC Institute of Health at Washington University.

Construction began in the summer of 2007 on the new building, which will house not only BioMed 21 laboratories and support facilities but also two academic departments of the School of Medicine as well as some support operations of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The University will be adding 240,000 square feet of research space, and the estimated total cost of the building will be $235 million. As a hub for BioMed 21, the building will provide space for five newly created Interdisciplinary Research Centers (IRCs).

In other major developments exemplifying the progress of the BioMed 21 program, an $11 million, 16,000 square-foot, free-standing computing facility is being constructed to house the computing equipment needed to support the rapidly expanding research of the world-leading Genome Sequencing Center. (See related announcement.) In addition, 15,000 square feet of space are being added to the previously established Center for Genome Sciences to support 11 new investigators who will design and interpret genome-anchored clinical studies linking disease traits to human genetic makeup.

Launched in 2003, BioMed 21 creates a multidisciplinary- and translational-research imperative for basic scientists and clinician-researchers from many different medical disciplines. "We launched BioMed 21 because we recognized that effective collaboration among researchers in different fields is essential to the future of medicine," says Larry J. Shapiro, M.D., executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the School of Medicine. "The initiative creates mechanisms to more quickly bring basic scientific knowledge to application for medical treatments. These expansions announced today are monumental and demonstrate the strength of our commitment to research that will revolutionize medical care."

Art Museum will unveil expansion plan Tuesday
By David Bonetti
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
11/02/2007


The St. Louis Art Museum will unveil the design of the museum’s expansion at a meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the museum’s auditorium. Architect David Chipperfield and museum director Brent Benjamin will lead the presentation. The audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions.

Chipperfield, a London-based architect, was recently awarded the annual James Stirling Prize of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Great Britain’s highest honor in the field. Chipperfield won for his design for the Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach am Neckar in Germany. He was also a finalist for his design for the America’s Cup Building in Valencia, Spain. Only six buildings altogether were shortlisted for the prize.

In the United States, Chipperfield has recently completed the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa, and the Anchorage Museum of History and Art in Alaska.

See renderings below.

David Chipperfield Architects' Saint Louis Art Museum designs revealed

David Chipperfield Architects have completed the design for a $125 million expansion of the Saint Louis Art Museum, presented on 5 November 2007.

The Saint Louis Art Museum is one of the leading art museums in the US, housing more than 30,000 works of art. Its collections include works of exceptional quality from virtually every culture and time period. Its Beaux-Arts-style historic home in Forest Park was designed for the 1904 World’s Fair by architect Cass Gilbert.

The expansion will increase the Museum's galleries and public spaces, providing new exhibition space for the Museum’s comprehensive collection, and also for touring exhibitions. The design creates an addition to the east and south of the original 1904 building with a dark, polished concrete façade made using Missouri river aggregate. New galleries and public spaces are top-lit and have a number of floor-to-ceiling windows, inviting and providing views from both inside and outside. The design organically links the expansion to the current structure by connecting to existing primary circulation axes. It features a new central staircase to more clearly connect the main level to a new, lower level public concourse serving an expanded café and the existing museum shop and auditorium.

A new restaurant will overlook Forest Park to the north. All existing Museum surface parking will be relocated to a 300-space, three-level, below-grade parking garage. The project also includes a new restaurant and a new fully accessible front entrance. In total, the plan provides for 82,452 square feet of new galleries, public space and art support, and 128,979 square feet for below-grade parking.

The Museum expects to break ground on the expansion project in late 2008, with completion anticipated in 2011.

Sorry, I really don't like it. I feel it's completely out of context with the original (beautiful) building. I understand that was likley the point, but I really don't like it.

The only saving grace it has is the attempt to blend it into the wooded surroundings with color, profile, and plantings. I hope they don't skimp on the new trees.

The Fed Reserve in St. Louis is adding a huge addition downtown, plus renovating its current building.

(Federal Reserve) Reinvestment in Downtown
St. Louis Commerce Magazine
October 2007


By Brian R. Hook


Federal Reserve complex, center

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis is making a major investment in downtown St. Louis by spending $130 million to renovate its headquarters.

The renovation project is on track to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2009, says Dave Sapenaro, St. Louis Fed vice president and chief operating officer.

The tower addition will be completed by the end of this year from a mechanical and structural perspective, Sapenaro says. The St. Louis Fed will spend 2008 and 2009 fitting out the interior and moving some of the bank’s departments into the new space.

Renovations started in 2004. The bank was already considering renovations before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Sapenaro says. “When 9-11 hit we were faced with a situation where we needed more space, but also needed to make some significant security enhancements to better prepare our structure for any kind of attack.”

Sapenaro says the St. Louis Fed worked very closely with the City of St. Louis. which allowed the bank to take a street in front of the bank and turn it into a walking plaza. This also allowed the bank to put a vestibule in front of the building for security screening. The City also allowed the bank to take a lane of traffic on the three other sides of the building to increase the distance between the street and the sides of the building.

“We were outgrowing our existing building,” Sapenaro says. “We did briefly consider other alternatives, but we just felt like staying where we are at and adding on and implementing those security enhancements were better solutions for us.”

These are screen captures from urbanstlouis.com.

Below the Lumiere Four Seasons Hotel's "arc of light" being tested. The "arc of light" will display different colors on the side and top of the Four Seasons Hotel. Special events colors may happen as well.











Pedestrian tunnel from Baer Plaza (near Edward Jones Dome). Visitors to the casino will be able to avoid the I-70 overpass mishmash by using the tunnel, which promises to be colorful, secure and high tech.

There are currently two in Illinois and three in Missouri. Another two are under construction in Missouri, Downtown and just outside of the south end of the city.

The streak apparently does a mix of colors as well.

Here's a rendering of what appears to be the new Centene Centre, which is planned for downtown St. Louis. It is a departure from the "boxy" towers in downtown St. Louis. It could be a "working" rendering so if the design changes, the new design will be posted.



Centene Centre is a part of the planned Ballpark Village. Notice the 250-unit condo tower to the left, which is also planned for Phase I of the Ballpark Village.

Here's an update on the "light box" aka "arc of light", which is being deemed a new St. Louis landmark. I believe they say there are 6,000 possible light combinations for this project. Check out how they make it happen by viewing the news report here.

Below is the model/plan for Phase II of Lumiere Place along the St. Louis Riverfront. It's a $500-million plan. The model is at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.


View from the Lenor K. Sullivan and Carr Streets


View from the Lenor K. Sullivan/Mississippi River


View from I-70, facing east

"Additional phases, which include eight residential buildings totaling 375 condos, and 220,810 square feet of commercial space, will be built after phase 1 opens based on market demand, said Pinnacle Chairman and CEO Daniel Lee.

The Jerde Partnership, based Los Angeles, was named master planner of Lumiere Place. "

"Making use of the French word for 'light,' every aspect of the mixed-used development will incorporate Lumiere Place in its branding, including The Casino at Lumiere Place and The Residences at Lumiere Place, Lee said.
"We wanted to create a neighborhood," Lee said. "We need to convince people who live in the arc around the city to come downtown."

"Retail tenants have not been signed to the proposed commercial space. The second phase of the development calls for a 35,258-square-foot grocery store, an 11,481-square-foot cafe and an additional 174,071 square feet of retail space."

Source

"Pinnacle hired The Jerde Partnership to master plan Lumière Place. Based in Los Angeles with offices in Amsterdam, Shanghai and Hong Kong, Jerde is internationally recognized for its global planning and urban design work. The firm's philosophy of "placemaking" has led to the creation of truly remarkable urban environments that provide lasting social, cultural and economic value and promote further investment and revitalization."

"Pinnacle's partnership with Jerde will put St. Louis in the company of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Tokyo and many other cities that have created remarkable communities through the vision of Jon Jerde and his partners." Mr. Lee said.

How the street grid is going to be impacted is hard to tell from the model, however, it appeared that N. First and N. Second will remain open. In fact, N. 2nd St. is a through street after phase I. I drove through the area.

Below is a map/area street grid where phases I and II (and possibly III) of Lumiere Place will rise. The streets in this area are narrow because it is where "Old St. Louis" once existed. There are "through" streets, an alley and major border streets.



From the looks of the model, it looks like Commercial St. (aka Commercial Alley) is going to be closed for the building of a railroad track wall barrier/park/parking garage, the sliver of Cole St. looks like it is going to be closed and made into pathways leading to the retail/entertainment courtyard from residential areas.

It looks like North 1st and North 2nd Streets are going to remain open. HoteLumiere's main entrance will be at 901 North First Street. HoteLumiere is a former Embassy Suites which is undergoing a major renovation.

Here's an overview of the street map.



And here's another map.



Note: Cole and Carr Streets, which are tad north, are not on the map; but you are still able to see the level of connectivity to the rest of LaClede's Landing.
