CitiField Mets Stadium

CitiField is a new state-of-the-art baseball stadium for the New York Mets, replacing Shea Stadium which opened in 1964. The site is a 65 acre parcel adjacent to the City of New Yorks Flushing Meadows Corona Park and south of Flushing Bay. An additional 10 acres of land owned by NYC Parks Department to the north and west of Shea Stadium is also included in the project scope.
The new stadium will accommodate 45,000 fans, while the site provides parking for 8,500 cars. A sustainably-designed bus parking area, which is paved with permeable unit pavers, can park forty buses.
Throughout the site, Abel Bainnson Butz, LLP ABB has utilized green design features to manage stormwater and to reduce energy use. Stormwater is infiltrated on site through strategically located planting areas, swales and porous pavers. High mast parking lights were chosen to achieve the required footcandles with significantly few fixtures and lower energy demand.
The perimeter streetscape and landscaped interchange will soften the impact of the parking areas and provide a warm welcome to arriving baseball fans. The completed CitiField site will feature over 850 trees in perimeter and interior areas of the site.
