Turner Celebrates Groundbreaking at the Columbus Crew MLS Stadium

October 29, 2019

Turner Construction Company is pleased to announce that the team from Turner’s Columbus office celebrated the groundbreaking of the new downtown Columbus Crew Major League Soccer Stadium set to open in July 2021.

"It was great to see the community come out to support the team and project," said Mark Ogden, Preconstruction Manager at Turner. "There is clearly a tremendous amount of passion, energy, and devotion to the Crew. Being part of this project has truly been an honor for the entire team."

With the new owners, project team members and a number of city officials on stage, as well as nearly 4,300 Black & Gold fans in attendance, the ceremony was held at the stadium’s new location, which will move the team from the outskirts of Columbus, located in the heart of the city’s Arena District.

Turner and joint venture partner Smoot Construction Company are providing the design-build services for the 460,000 square foot facility, which will serve as the home to the Columbus Crew SC. The stadium is expected to be a 20,000-seat venue on a 33-acre site. Beyond the stadium, the project will complete the Arena District with a riverfront park and mixed-use development. Premium amenities include 30 luxury suites and 30 loge boxes. Also included is a large event plaza with a large LED screen for outdoor gatherings, concerts and festivals.
