Yankee Stadium is a 1.3 million square foot major league baseball stadium and home of the New York Yankees. Located one block north of the original stadium in the Bronx, the stadium is a steel-framed, architectural pre-cast walled structure. The exterior pre-cast façade references the original Yankee Stadium with a replica of the original copper frieze.

The stadium includes restaurants, lounges, dining areas and concession stands such as a Hard Rock Café and 6,300 square foot NYYSteak. Additionally, a large food court near centerfield accommodates fans from more than 5,000 bleacher seats.  The facilities are equipped with a telecommunications infrastructure to support the required technology needed by vendors and for future growth. Fans can watch the game from all of the concession stands and restrooms.

The stadium includes locker rooms, showers, physical therapy rooms, exercise and fitness rooms and instructional areas. Each player’s locker has Internet hookup and is fully wired with television and other audio visual capabilities. The physical therapy space has a whirlpool, endless pool, sauna, steam room, message room and a medical care center. The training areas include a weight room, and batting and pitching cages. The instructional space includes a coaches training room. The stadium also includes laundry facilities, a family room with a nursery, equipment rooms and press room for interviews.

During the course of construction, the stadium required 7,000 pieces of structural steel, 15,000 gallons of paint, 946 miles of electrical wire (or five million feet of branch and distribution wire) and 20,000 light bulbs. The scoreboard screen is six times larger than the previous scoreboard screen.  This high-definition LED screen is 60 x 102 feet, making it the largest digital screen in a baseball stadium.

Yankee Stadium won McGraw Hill Publications “Project of the Year” Award for New York Construction in 2009.
