TORONTO — It may be the off-season but there is a lot of action occurring at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
Work is well underway on the second phase of renovations at the home of the Toronto Blue Jays which includes completely transforming the 100 Level.
“The entire 100-Level bowl demolition is complete and now the work begins on what’s to come,” states a recent tweet by TBJ Live on X.
Construction began at the end of the 2023 season earlier this year and is expected to be complete for the 2024 season.
According to a release, following the full demolition of the 100-level seating bowl and structure, from foul pole to foul pole, it will be rebuilt “to introduce a modern ballpark experience designed specifically for baseball viewing.”
Key features include: additional legroom, modern-shaped seats with slats on the back that provide more airflow, wider seats between the dugouts, cupholders throughout, adaptable raisable armrest options and handrails in every aisle; greater variety of seating options, including different vantage points from new sections, accessible field level seats, plus the previously announced premium seating experiences; and improved sightlines with less obstruction and new seats closer to the action as a result of the remodelled bowl structure.
Foul territory will also be reduced by about 3,000-square-feet total, between the middle of the infield dirt (just past the bases) to before the warning track on both sides of the diamond.
