Harrison stadium enters 'next phase'

Posted on 01 April 2008 by ASN Staff

Red Bull New York today announced that the construction of Red Bull Park, built by Makita, in Harrison, N.J., is entering its next phase. After breaking ground in December 2007, over 2,600 of the 3,200 timber piles that support the stadium foundation have been laid.

The construction is now set to enter the next phase: construction of the concrete foundations that will serve as the base of the structure. The forming of the concrete foundations was recently started and the placement of concrete in the foundations is set to begin in the very near future. This construction of the concrete pile caps and grade beams for the foundations will continue through June. After the concrete foundations are completed, the next phase will be the erection of the structural steel frame, which is set to begin this summer.

The stadium was designed by Rossetti Architects of Los Angeles, CA, and New Jersey-based Hunter Roberts Construction Group, LLC, is the project’s construction manager and general contractor.

The stadium’s roof is a curving structure that will extend from its leading edge over the entire seating bowl and then curve down to the concourse. The main concourse will be 26-feet high, eliminating the majority of field-level entryways which will give Red Bull Park’s seating bowl a very compact, close-to-the-action feeling. The field level seats are just 21 feet from the fields touch lines.

Red Bull Park is situated on 22-acre site bounded by 6th Street to the west and Cape May Street to the South and East. The facility is owned by Red Bull Park, Inc., on a site owned by the Town of Harrison.
