Aloha Stadium – design description
New Aloha Stadium is expected to be built just beside the old one, but not on the same spot. This way construction works won't collide with sports operations and other events.
The new stadium is proposed with majority of its seating covered, though in terms of capacity it would be significantly smaller than the current one. It's anticipated that 30,000 – 35,000 would be most suitable for Honolulu's needs, with option of quick increase to 40,000 for special events.
The scheme would also see a massive mixed-use complex built around the stadium generating additional revenue for stadium operations, aside from the expected 300events per year. With improved public transport, this would become a major leisure hub of Honolulu.
The presented renderings are preliminary, they're part of the feasibility study carried out in order to establish whether it's better to renovate the old stadium or build from scratch. As it turns out, the new building could be up to $100 million cheaper.
USA: Say “aloha” to the new stadium in Honolulu
Although the first shovel will go into the ground no sooner than 2023, preparations for the new Aloha Stadium are in full swing. Hawaii state authorities are currently awaiting bids from three companies interested in a contract to build the 35,000-seat facility.
