construction to begin on red bull park - translucent polycarbonate
Team executives told the stars that the construction of Harrison Red Bull Park will begin next week and the park has been delayed for more than a year due to cleaning and design issuesLedger today.
Less than two weeks after Red Bull acquired 50% of AEG's stake in major league football facilities.
Mark de grande Pree, managing director of Red Bull, said the construction schedule is 18 to 20 months and the target date will be open in the summer of 2009.
The final design has been revised to football
The specific facilities can accommodate 25,189 people.
AEG's plans include the construction of a concert stage at one end of the stadium and a cantilever roof covering most people.
The Red Bull version eliminates the stage, reducing the number of luxury suites from 50 to 30, and covers each seat with translucent polycarbonate and aluminum roofs.
Red Bull Park will remain at the heart of the $1 billion Harrison Development, which will include office space, retail stores, parking lots and housing across the Newark Pasi River.
Other projects still exist and have nothing to do with the redesign of the stadium, De Grandpre said.
