Is that being built on the site of the old Orange Bowl?

^ yes it is. In the satellite pic below the old Orange Bowl can be seen and it's being built in the heart of Little Havana.



The parking surrounding the Orange Bowl will become 4 highrise garages and the county has long range plans to extend Metrorail to the ballpark which currently has 2 stations less than a mile away.

Really doesn't sound like they could've built it in a better place than Little Havana, given the popularity of baseball in Cuba. I don't remember: Do we have renderings elsewhere in this thread?

Oh btw...once this stadium is complete, the Marlins will change it's name to the 'Miami Marlins.' And they are getting new uniforms as well.

I don't think those are the actual new uniforms....from what I've heard, orange is going to become a major color for the logo and uniforms...
I was just up in the Santa Maria on Brickell a couple of days back, and the view of the ballpark from there is amazing!
Can't wait to start watching games there!

The stadium renovation project will include preservation of the existing structure and enhancements that will improve the game-day experience for all fans. Planning has been under way for more than three years. Construction is scheduled to begin at the end of the 2007 football season and to be completed by August 2010.

Improvements will include:

Wider seats and aisles with handrails to make it easier for fans to use the aisles.
New elevated concourses with additional restrooms and concessions along both sidelines.
More seating for fans with impaired mobility along the sidelines.
Two new buildings on the north end of the stadium that will house additional restrooms, concessions and public safety services.
A new building on the south end of the stadium that will offer additional concessions and restrooms.
A new press box for media and game operations.
Refurbished restroom facilities.
650+ new chairback seats on the west side.
49 suites in the west side structure (36 suites located on the first level and 13 suites on the second level).
1,900+ outdoor club seats and stadium lounge on the first level of the east side structure.
250+ indoor club seats and 850+ covered outdoor club seats and stadium lounge on the second level of the east side structure.
36 suites on the third level of the east side structure.
Four towers, one at the end of each sideline structure, with elevators and wide stairways to bring patrons to the new concourses and enclosed seating areas.

Seating of more than 108,000 compared to the present 107,501.

The expected cost of $226 million will be funded through private donations and Athletic Department resources, primarily the revenues generated by the new seating.

maybe I have missed the explanation, but what the hell is that massive viaduct-like structure around the stadium???? Alone, that thing must cost over $50 million! (maybe more)

------------------------------------------------------------
Grêmio Arena

20th September beginning of construction event, over 10 thousand fans





fans going from the old stadium to the terrain where the new stadium will be built, for the event marking the beginning of construction




the event



Hugo de Leon, a player who conquered the World Title (against Hamburg SV, from Germany), in 1983, bringing a piece of the grass from the old stadium to plant it, simbolically, in the area of the new stadium





all images from here
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=600897&page=6



Grêmio fans, at the event, chanting a song against our cross city arch-rivals, Internacional, who are reforming their old decrepit stadium (while we are building a brand new one )
Video Link


members of the Geral, a "firm" (sometimes called Ultras in Europe, here in Brazil we simply call them Torcidas Organizadas (Organized Rooters) arriving for the event
Video Link




video showing the Arena structure
Video Link


and a video I shot today showing the workers driving the piles into the Earth. The construction company is still hiring workers and bringing equipement. Three more pile driver machines are supposed to arrive in the next week or so and in a few months they want to have 2000 workers...

the videos above bring me the question: do any of the other stadiums shown in this thread have this level of fan participation and support? Any videos showing it?

I'm surprised there's a thread on great stadiums, and no mention of the Stade Olympique in Montreal..
I'm a Toronto and Blue Jays fan, but I love this stadium..

Tallest freestanding slanted structure in the world:



It may have been a financial failure (3rd most expensive stadium ever built, City of Montreal just finished paying it off),
and the interior wasn't even complete in time for the 1976 opening ceremonies,
but it is still a great stadium nonetheless, one of the best in Canada.

Trantor that viaduct type structure around the stadium in Miami is the guideway for the retractable roof.
