PARIC Corporation helped complete a major renovation to the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial grounds in downtown St. Louis, MO. This project provided much-needed revitalization to the iconic riverfront grounds surrounding the Gateway Arch, the most notable feature of the St. Louis skyline. The renovation provides visitors a more vibrant and safer place to visit, bridging the gap between the downtown skyscrapers and the Mississippi River. A grassy park built over the highway now connects downtown to the Arch grounds and riverfront.
The updated Arch museum features a curved glass entrance, cut into the ground with a water feature in the center. 46,000 sq. ft. were added to the museum, to create a more open feel, and new lighting was added throughout.
