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.
