More changes for 2014 and beyond: the Colorado Rockies unveiled plans for a 38,000-square-foot LoDo-style rooftop deck to be added to Coors Field for next season.
“We are always striving to improve the entire experience at Coors Field,” said Rockies Owner, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dick Monfort. “With that spirit in mind, it is exciting to add to our lower downtown ballpark the largest Roof Top Deck in sports, featuring two levels with more than 38,000 square feet.”
With the design help of Populous (the original architect of Coors Field), Mortenson Construction (one of the original construction contractors of Coors Field) and Aramark (original and exclusive food and beverage provider to Coors Field) the current phase of improvements began earlier this month.
The Upper Rightfield and Concourse Project features will include:
- Stunning panoramic views of the entire Front Range and surrounding neighborhoods, as well as Downtown Denver.
- 5280 Craft Bar — celebrating Denver, the Mile High City with a bar 52 feet and 80 inches long with 52 beer taps.
- CHUBurger Restaurant, an established Colorado craft casual dining experience, featuring a display kitchen and craft burgers made with beef raised from their own Oskar Blues Hops & Heifers Farm in Longmont, Colorado.
- VIP Cabana Terrace with an urban garden setting that includes a fireplace, rooftop lights, casual furniture and pregame entertainment.
Work has already begun on the changes.
Hard to believe, but Coors Field is the third-oldest ballpark in the National League; only Dodger Stadium and Wrigley Field are older.
