Winner of Arch grounds design to be announced

September 21, 2010

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The winner of an international competition to
redesign the grounds of the Gateway Arch will be announced Friday.

The official announcement is at 10 a.m. Friday at the Old
Courthouse in St. Louis. The National Park Service said Tuesday
that officials will also outline the next steps in the process.

There are five finalists in the competition, sponsored by the
park service and a St. Louis private foundation. Planners want to
redesign the 91-acre Arch grounds in time for its 50th anniversary
in 2015.

The park service estimates the work will cost $305 million.
