The U.S. Soccer Federation and FC Dallas have released details of an updated construction timeline for the National Soccer Hall of Fame at Toyota Stadium. From that we also have some new renderings that show how the street level view will be from outside the stadium and the new locker rooms.
National Soccer Hall of Fame Estimated Construction Timeline*
- Winter 2017 – South end zone seating in place
- Summer 2018 – Locker rooms, Lamar Hunt U.S Open Cup Hall of Fame club and terrace, roof structure, team store, box office and press conference areas completed
- Winter 2018 – Concourse level Hall of Fame Club and Museum completed
*all estimated completion dates are subject to change
The new roof looks very nice compared to previous renderings that we’ve seen. It will certainly draw attention and have people begging for that look around the rest of the stadium.
The new timeline is also intriguing as it means part of the project won’t be done until late 2018.
Other project highlights include:
· A 24,750 square-foot roof structure that will cover almost 3,000 premium seats
· Expanded, multiuse game day locker rooms featuring 200 lockers
· Two field-level player tunnels that allow teams to exit separately through fan areas
· The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Bar – a club space with casual food and beverage options that overlooks the glass-enclosed press conference area and locker room exit tunnels
· Banquet space in the Hall of Fame club area which provides an elevated food and beverage experience that can accommodate seated events up to 700 guests
· 3,000 square-foot specialty store that will also offer soccer-specific merchandise
· 1,389 square feet of additional video boards, including two in-stadium boards, which will increase the Toyota Stadium video board footprint to approximately 7,512 square feet or slightly larger than two NBA-regulation basketball courts
What do you make of these new renderings and timeline?
