Chicago Cubs New Renovation Plan May 27, 2014
The Cubs on Tuesday showcased — and put a million price tag on their revised plan to add more signs, seats and lights at Wrigley Field and said if the team is not allowed to “control our ballpark,” it would consider moving and look first at other Chicago sites. That brings the overall cost of renovating Wrigley and developing the land around it to 5 million. The added cost is tied to several new features. They include: a 30,000-square-foot clubhouse in a two-level basement beneath an outdoor plaza; adding a 200-seat restaurant and 200-person auditorium behind the home dugout; adding three or four rows of bleacher seats and claiming even more seats by relocating the home and visiting bullpens from foul territory to a protected area beneath the expanded bleachers that gives relief pitchers a view of the field.
