Dodger Stadium

In 2012-2013, Dodger Stadium underwent an estimated $100 million renovation following the team's purchase by Guggenheim Baseball Management. The owners successfully modernized the stadium while preserving its many character-defining features that make the stadium so iconic.

Guggenheim hired architecture firm, Levin and Associates, to design a preservation-minded renovation. The work replaced seating, widened concourses and isles, and added modern amenities that included a new scoreboard, an improved sound system, a children's playground, new concession stands, and new ballclubs for the teams. Through the use of colors and patterns, Dodger Stadium successfully revived the Mid-Century Modern feeling it had when first opened in 1962.

The renovations focus on two aspects of the ballpark: technology upgrades and enhanced comfort for patrons, including restrooms and concessions. Technology upgrades include installing high-definition video boards in the left and right fields while restoring the unique hexagonal shape of both scoreboards.

Improvements for comfort include widening concourses, adding more ADA-accessible seating, and expanding and renovating restrooms on the Loge, Reserve, and Top Deck levels.
