Union Station on Wednesday unveiled plans to erect a new bridge linking Pershing Road to the rear parking structure and to pump life into the barren space outside Science City. Officials hope to accomplish that by using $5 million in Missouri tax credits to leverage $10.7 million in private investment.
A City Council committee endorsed the tax-credit plan Wednesday, and the matter goes before the full council today. The city must approve any application to the Missouri Development Finance Board, which next meets on Nov. 20.
The three-year plan is part of an effort to transform Science City into the “science center of tomorrow,” possibly with a new name.
