Rays release new stadium renderings

The incoming $1.3 billion stadium is still waiting on final approval from St. Pete City Council.

A large pavillion-style stadium features large windows with palm trees right outside and people milling about.

Construction on the new stadium is expected to start in January 2025.

It seems the Rays are embracing the dream that is Florida living: bringing the outdoors in.

The Rays + design firm Populous just released new renderings of the highly anticipated ballpark. The $1.3 billion facility features large windows wrapping around the building, porches, and as well as doorways and terraces bridging the indoor and outdoor spaces, according to a release.

“Our baseball park will be the most intimate and inviting in the sport,” said Rays President Matt Silverman, in a release. “The park is designed to bring our fans as close to the field as possible, to create a distinctive, compelling game experience.”

The 30,000-seat pavilion-style facility will house premium clubs and suites, decks and social gathering spaces, and flexible viewing areas across three deck levels. Plus, the venue would double as a space for concerts and other major area events.
