The latest renovations at Hard Rock Stadium are unfolding, and the Miami Dolphins say that the ongoing projects are making progress.
As part of the latest phase of its major renovation, Hard Rock Stadium is receiving upgrades in multiple areas. The biggest change inside the facility will be to the premium seating, as the suites and suite level are in the process of being renovated, and work is also taking place in the parking lot.
This upgrade is nowhere near as extensive as the one undertaken last year, when Hard Rock Stadium received a new canopy over the seating bowl along with four new videoboards as part of the very comprehensive phase of the project. That said, the ongoing phase of construction does still involve a significant investment in several areas of the facility, making it a priority. The Dolphins say that the projects are moving along, and should impress fans once completed. More from The Palm Beach Post:
“The stadium’s coming along fine,” team president Tom Garfinkel said at a Fins Weekend golf event this morning. “We’re doing a big renovation of all the suites, suite level, the clubs, the parking lots. I jokingly say that, compared to last year, it’s like painting the bedroom.
“But it’s still a $50 million renovation to clubs and suites. It’s a major project and a lot of work. But it’s coming along fine. I think people will be really excited when the see it.”
The first phase of the renovation to Hard Rock Stadium took place in 2015–when it was still known as Sun Life Stadium–and amenities such as new seating and upgraded concessions were put into place. Hard Rock Stadium will not be used for Dolphins’ games again until the NFL preseason begins in August, but major concerts by U2, Metallica, and Coldplay are scheduled for this summer.
