Pedicabs St. Louis MO
As noted here previously, Old North St. Louis is the pilot neighborhood for a new initiative seeking creative ideas for sustainable uses of empty land in the city. The Sustainable Land Lab competition, sponsored and led by Washington University’s Office of Sustainability and the City of St. Louis, is an open call for proposals from anyone who wishes to participate - and take responsibility for implementing their ideas. Six lots in Old North have been identified, 4 of which will be selected. Winning teams will receive $5, 000 in funding to implement and maintain their projects as living laboratories, teaching tools, and regional sustainability assets for two years.
After receiving and reviewing 48 submissions, the jury for the competition announced yesterday their selections for proposals to advance to the second round of the competition. The full list of 48 concepts submitted for consideration represented a broad range of innovative and inspiring ideas, including: habitat for pollinators, carbon sequestering landscape, pop-up business incubators, modular sustainable in-fill, engaging public spaces, platforms for sharing community resources, soil remediation, designs informed by ethnohistorical sustainability practices, on-site energy production, and much more.
Below are concept summaries of the 15 submissions (listed alphabetically) moving to the next round:
Site Selection: Lot 6, 1303 Montgomery
Concept & Team Summary:
The Bistro Box concept is a small business incubator that transforms surplus cargo containers into a compact restaurant and culinary destination. Young chef entrepreneurs seeking to establish a reputation apply for a 1-year fellowship residence. A consortium of established local chefs advise the young chefs and promote the concept to assure its exposure and success. At completion of the residency, chefs prepare a business plan for post residency location within the neighborhood and a new chef is engaged. The program hires and trains young people from the neighborhood in culinary skills and uses locally sourced product. Lot 6 is the preferred site for the Bistro Box where synergies can be established with the Old North Grocery Store and garden and local employment opportunities can be provided for Haven of Grace residents.
