The Great Rivers Greenway District is pleased to announce that it will host a pre-bid conference at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 7, 2013, as an initial step in the construction of the Central Riverfront portion of the CityArchRiver 2015 project. The event will be held downtown in the first floor conference room of the St. Louis City Municipal Court building, located at 1520 Market Street.
Immediately following the conference, a DBE/MBE networking and outreach session will be held to encourage collaboration and minority participation.
The event will provide prospective contractors with the opportunity to learn more about the Central Riverfront portion of the CityArchRiver 2015 project and the 10 project packages that comprise this project component. The bids will be publicly opened and read on Oct. 24, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the District’s offices, located at 6174 Delmar Boulevard in St. Louis.
The conference and networking event come on the heels of a successful stakeholder meeting with supportive DBE/MBE organizations held Sept. 6, 2013. More than 50 organizations and leaders focused on promoting skills, careers and capacity of DBE/MBE firms in the region were in attendance at the initial meeting to learn more about the construction projects. Both meetings are part of an effort to build a proactive and inclusive CityArchRiver 2015 project.
CityArchRiver 2015 improvements will provide visitors and residents with new opportunities for entertainment, recreation and learning through landscape improvements to the Arch grounds, renovated and expanded museum space and acres of new community-oriented event spaces. Great Rivers Greenway will oversee the construction of improvements to the Central Riverfront, one of 12 project components. The riverfront work includes the elevation of Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard, which will reduce flooding on the central riverfront and provide additional opportunities for recreational activities along Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard.
