Dodgers: Centerfield Plaza Taking Shape in Dodger Stadium Renovation

Crunch time at Chavez Ravine.



As part of your weekly update on the status of the renovations taking place at Dodger Stadium, it seems that some good progress has come over the last week.

YouTube user John Kay shared a new video with some aerial shots of the update.

Last week, the Dodgers provided a full update on the construction taking place. In the update, LA VP Janet Marie Smith shared information on how the renovation is on schedule, despite the visuals telling a different story.

However, in this latest video, you see much more of the centerfield plaza taking shape. The frame of the batter’s eye has been put up, and the outlines for some of the food pavilions (being built off site) have been laid. Additionally, the concrete has been poured for the new home run seat section at the front of the pavilion.

Along with the skeleton for the standing area and walk way that connects the stadium for a full 360 walkaround experience, the venerable pavilion benches have been repainted and some have been set in place, particularly in right field.

Opening day is just over one month away and construction crews are working around the clock at Chavez Ravine.

More from the Dodgers

The project will create a new “front door” to Dodger Stadium with two acres of food and entertainment offerings in the new Centerfield Plaza and renovated Pavilions, and also improve ballpark circulation through the addition of elevators, escalators and bridges – all without changing the look and feel of one of the most picturesque stadiums in sports. Further details on this project will be announced as Opening Day approaches, including food and beverage concepts and interactive experiences.

  1. Once the foundations are poured and ready, things should speed up.
    Will it be ready by Opening Day? I doubt it. Unless it’s a 24/7 work schedule, but as the Dodgers are all about the $$$, they probably won’t want to pay the O.T..

  2. If this was Minute Maid Park (Houston) they’d be way behind schedule now. Those high tech survellience systems are expensive, and costly to integrate seamlessly into the architecture to achieve ideal concealment. Those CIA installation crews don’t come cheap either.
