Ballpark Village, a partnership between the St. Louis Cardinals and The Cordish Companies, represents a groundbreaking approach to urban development, the first time a professional sports venue was master planned and fully integrated into a broader mixed-use development. Recognized for its quality, scale, creative design and impact on the community, Ballpark Village has played a pivotal role in the revitalization of downtown St. Louis. Lauded by the City as its most important development in a decade, Ballpark Village was the result of a unique public-private partnership between the City, State and Federal Governments. Professional sports teams across the country are using Ballpark Village, which created a new year-round gathering place that is active both day and night, as a model in enhancing the sports experience.
