Public gets $16.2 million bill for Rams retention effort

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The failed, frenzied effort to persuade the St. Louis Rams to stay by building them a new riverfront football stadium will end up costing the public more than $16.2 million — and no ground was ever broken on the project.

A majority of the money — $10.5 million — is going to local architecture firm HOK.

The Post-Dispatch reports attorneys for the current stadium, the Edward Jones Dome, have billed nearly $900,000, and Thompson Coburn bond and financing lawyers charged $760,000.

The effort to build the $1.1 billion open-air stadium came to a sudden halt Tuesday when NFL owners overwhelmingly voted to approve team owner Stan Kroenke’s request to move the Rams to California.

Kroenke plans to build a $2 billion football stadium near Los Angeles.
