The St. Louis Rams have rejected the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission  proposal to upgrade the Edward Jones Dome.

According to the Commission, the Rams formally responded to their proposal Thursday.  Last month, the Commission proposed a $124 million upgrade to the dome including building a new 50,000 square foot building with a two tier connector bridge in Baer Park.

The upgrades are needed because by contract with the Rams can break the lease every 10 years if the dome falls short of first tier status.

$30 million has already been poured into the dome in upgrades since 2005 and the CVC’s plans would build on the amenities already in place and add some new attractions.

The Commission says the Rams will now submit their own proposal to improve the Edward Jones Dome on or before May 1, 2012.
