HKS roll-out next phase of redevelopment for Dodger Stadium

The $75-million dollar construction project, designed by HKS Sports & Entertainment Group, expands the field-level concourse to include nearly double the number of points of sale and restrooms, two new all-inclusive clubs for baseline seat ticket holders and a new energy-efficient and environmentally friendly cooling system. More than $50 million has been invested in stadium renovations over the past two years, and with this phase, the cumulative investment into Dodger Stadium will be nearly $150 million since the McCourt family gained ownership in 2004.
The design team focused on heightening the fan experience. The goal is two-fold: First, to increase the number of restrooms and improve the quality of food and beverage concessions, allowing fans better access to these important amenities; second, is a higher quality look and feel to the concourse architecture that projects the southern California, mid-century modern design of the stadium’s exterior.
HKS has been renovating Dodger Stadium for the past two seasons. Every seat within the primary seating bowl has been replaced using the stadium's original color palette. Traditional yet modern box seating was incorporated at the baselines and video display boards were added within the outfield and baseline playing field walls.
