To secure funding and negotiate a long-term lease with the NY Mets, Onondaga County needed to improve Syracuse’s 25-year old, minor-league stadium. EwingCole developed a master plan and design for significant repairs, fan upgrades, and systems replacements to create a state-of-the-art ballpark that reflects the current trends in design. Outside, fans have access to expanded entrances, a new entry plaza, and a ballpark branded in Met’s orange and blue. Inside, fan accommodations include larger seats, a terraced area behind home plate, drink rail seating, sloped grassy areas, and bleacher seating. New amenities include LED lighting, improved social spaces – a new bar and enhanced Hank Sauer Room and right-field party deck.
"Ewing Cole was perfect for this project. Their vision for this Stadium was more than a renovation, it was a transformation to a building this whole community is proud of. Ewing Cole was professional, efficient and took a comprehensive approach to this project . They immersed themselves into the Mets and Syracuse and the end result is a stadium that is not only visually unique but also functional and built for years to come."
