Dodger Stadium, built in 1962, is the largest baseball park in the
major leagues and has, arguably, the best seats in the game, with perfectly
constructed sightlines. After the multimillion-dollar improvements PCL
completed in 2014, the stadium now boasts additional entrances and more
accessible areas, where attendees can stroll freely through the concourses, in
pedestrian outfield plazas, and to lounging areas that overlook the bull pens.
PCL has completed many projects at Dodger
Stadium, including multimillion-dollar upgrades in
2014 and more recently, the installation of the
stadium’s first Jackie Robinson statue.
PCL continues to provide preconstruction and construction services at
the stadium. PCL’s Special
Projects Division performed several upgrades, including in the Lexus Dugout
Club and the Visiting Team Clubhouse. Renovations to the Lexus Dugout Club, an
exclusive dining and lounge area open to those who purchase Lexus Level seats,
included new audiovisual systems, new bar and food-service areas, an upgraded
lounge, a team store, trophy display case, and interior finishes.
PCL’s work at Dodger Stadium has also included the completion of
structural upgrades, suite renovations, landscaping, streetscaping,
concession-stand buildouts, office build-outs, and restaurant renovations.
“PCL has proved flexible
and able to respond quickly to our needs, both managing small projects on short
notice as well as planning major construction in the off season. We admire and
respect their attention to design, our budgets, and the challenging schedules.”
Janet Marie Smith, Senior Vice President of
Planning and Development, Los Angeles Dodgers
All renovation work retains elements of the original stadium design.
Featured materials such as custom masonry “Dodger Block” and corrugated metal
panels are added to all new projects.
In celebration of the team’s history, the following major-league
touches have also been added: The Tommy Lasorda Trattoria, a tribute to the
renowned Dodgers manager and a restaurant he owned; and the stadium’s first
statue of Hall of Fame great Jackie Robinson.
The Dodger Stadium street address has been changed to “Vin Scully
Avenue,” in honor of the recently retired iconic Dodgers broadcaster. PCL
completed the landscape work that accompanied the name change.
