MLS District reveal: MLS4TheLou latest
MLS4TheLou’s proposed stadium will be more than a sports venue. It will be a destination in a new Downtown West district that will reflect the city’s rich history and look forward into the Club’s future.
MLS4TheLou’s mission will be nothing short of creating architecture, green spaces and gathering places that inspire its city and its fans.
#MLS4THELOU has been working closely with a number of public officials to expand the footprint of the proposed stadium site to approximately 30 acres—which is almost all currently undeveloped.
This will not only allow for the development of a world-class stadium, but will help transform Downtown West into an urban activity hub open year-round and easily accessible via pedestrian pathways, bicycle and public transit.
A representative for MLS4TheLou said:
An Updated Plan That’s Built To Work Better. For Our City, Our Fans And Our Team.
After many conversations with public officials, ownership has agreed to purchase and own the stadium and land. We made this change with support of Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed in order to address concerns resulting from the City’s previous experience with sports venues.
We believe this change is in the best interest of both the city and ownership and allows for a broader vision of the development of the stadium and surrounding district.
