Along the northern perimeter of Dodger Stadium, construction is in full swing for a $100-million renovation that is poised for completion prior to the start of the 2020 MLB Season.
The project, which follows $300 million in prior upgrades to the stadium from Dodgers owner Guggenheim Baseball Management, will include:
- a new center field plaza featuring food and beverage venues, sports bars, a children's play area, space for live music and the collection of "Legends of Dodger Baseball" plaques;
- left- and right-field pavilions with restrooms, enclosed bars, and "home run seats" beyond the outfield wall;
- bridges connecting the new pavilions to the rest of the stadium, allowing for fans to walk the perimeter of the ballpark at any level; and
- the replacement of the existing center field speaker tower with a new sound system.
Dodger Stadium's maximum seating capacity of 56,000 - the largest in Major League Baseball - will remain unchanged.
The latest renovation comes as Dodger Stadium is poised to host the 2020 MLB All Star game.
Future upgrades to Dodger Stadium could come well outside the field. A company called Aerial Rapid Transit Technologies, LLC has proposed the construction of an aerial gondola system which would connect the stadium with Union Station. The proposed $125-million system would provide a five-minute one-way trip.
