KAI Build Selected General Contractor for Half-Acre Urban Park in St. Louis City’s Historic Laclede’s Landing District

September 6, 2019

The Great Rivers Greenway has selected KAI Build as the general contractor for The Katherine Ward Burg Garden project, the first step in a plan to redevelop the St. Louis City Riverfront in historic Laclede’s Landing. Great Rivers Greenway is a public agency dedicated to making the St. Louis region a more vibrant place to live, work and play by developing a regional network of greenways and parks.

The urban park, planned for a half-acre vacant lot adjacent to historic Eads Bridge, memorializes local professional photographer Katherine Ward Burg who was known for taking pictures of many prominent St. Louisans and who loved the Mississippi River.

Plans for the garden include:

  • Wood performance deck
  • Wood deck steps
  • River Birch tree grove
  • Wood top seat wall
  • Concrete wall sign
  • Perforated metal screen wall
  • Aluminum trellis with hanging chairs
  • Sloped sidewalk
  • Plaza concrete pavers

A ribbon cutting was held on July 2 for the Lucas Avenue street reopening at the south end of Laclede’s Landing from 2nd Street. The street will give access to The Katherine Ward Burg Garden. Construction of the park is expected to take about seven months. To learn more about KAI, visit www.kai-db.com
