Plank Street Station possibililty for MetroLink?

CMT in partnership with Metro will be hosting an upcoming presentation from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) St. Louis on the possibilities for development near the UMSL South MetroLink Station.  The program, underwritten by the AGC St. Louis, will have ULI professionals presenting on the possibilities for Transit Oriented Development (TOD) opportunities at the station on Tuesday, April 17 including a possible rebranding of the area to the “Plank Street Station”.

CMT engaged the ULI St. Louis Chapter to do a Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) for the UMSL South MetroLink Station.  The TAP, composed of local experts on land use, policy, and development, spent two days analyzing the opportunities for the UMSL South Station, interviewing stakeholders including the university, the City of Normandy and developing a possible plan to move development forward.  

“TOD education/advocacy is a key goal for CMT this year, and it is our hope that this ULI Study takes our education and advocacy efforts one step further by providing a tool to move development forward,” said Kim Cella, Executive Director of CMT.

 This special presentation will be held on Tuesday, April 17 at Millennium Student Center Century Rooms A&B at the University of Missouri – St. Louis campus to discuss the results of the TAP.  Please consider joining us. RSVP at info@cmt-stl.org.

Special thanks to the AGC St. Louis for underwriting this event. They have had the foresight to realize that MetroLink is a tool for development in the region and are proactively working to bring new developments along the alignment. Thanks also to the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the City of Normandy for helping us move this project forward,” added Cella.
