New Vikings Stadium


Twin Citian

Recommended Posts

I thought I would create a thread for this project.

 

The Metrodome tear down will begin after power is shut off on Jan. 18th.  The dome's roof will deflate in under 30 minutes.  Shortly after deflation, the tear down will begin at the same time the concrete foundation for the new stadium is being poured.

 

For the 2014 and 2015 seasons, the Vikings will play at TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota.

 

The stadium has already been named one of three finalists for the 2018 Super Bowl.  Officials have applied to host the Final Four championship in 2018, 2019, and 2020 as well as future College Football National Championship games.

The first sheet of glass is on-site and ready to go up.  Each transparent glass sheet is 5 feet by 9 feet and some 10,000 sheets will form the exterior skin of the stadium.

 

Here a are couple photos from today:

Photo looking east: to the left new Wells Fargo twin towers and parking ramp for the air rights development. Center: future site of the downtown east park (The Commons), which will include the parking lot and the building (one of the MPLS Star Tribune's former buildings - yes it will be torn down.  A new apartment building will also be built on this site.  Right: across from the parking lot is the Minneapolis Armory, which will be turned into a concert venue.

Vikings are going to have the best looking stadium in the NFL when it's completed. This looks awesome. Love all the glass on the top... 

It's definitely an interesting looking stadium.  I personally like it, but right now it's really mixed - people either love or hate it.
