Thanks to the efforts of St. Louis Arts Chamber of Commerce, St. Louis Artworks, West End South CID and Pocket Parks and with funding from the St. Louis Violence Prevention Commission, renovation of the lot at 5902 Clemens in the West End is underway! Follow along as the renovation activates the lot to a neighborhood greenspace with sculpture and art designed landscaping. While the project will occur in phases, the initial phase of design and installation of the landscaping will be complete by September 29, 2021. Interested in helping? Volunteer!
We are seeking resident suggestions for the redesign. On July 17th there will be a pop up event on the lot with food, games and surveys to collect input for the final design of the space. There are so many options! Here are a few simple renderings to get the conversation started:
The three design ideas above include a memorial structure which will hold resident memorobilia of the past present and future hopes for the neighborhood.
We will be adding many more ideas for input into the design before and after the event on July 17, 2021.
In addition, St. Louis ArtWorks has created three sculptures that will be included in the design.
Of course, volunteers will be needed to help install this project sometime in September. Interested in volunteering for this neighbohood redevelopment project? Sign up!
