Howard Hughes Corporation Announces Plans for HOK-Designed Las Vegas Ballpark
HOK has been selected to design a 10,000-seat ballpark in downtown Summerlin, Nevada. The new stadium will be the future home of the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s.
“With a new home in Downtown Summerlin, the future of professional baseball in Southern Nevada looks exceptionally bright,” 51s President Don Logan said. “We are confident this location, which is easily accessed from all regions of the valley via the 215 Beltway, will help grow our fan base and introduce new generations to America’s favorite pastime.”
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority will be the naming rights partner for the ballpark. In addition to serving as the home of the Las Vegas 51s, Las Vegas Ballpark will host civic, community, nonprofit and sporting events.
The ballpark will provide a wide range of seating options including 22 suites, club seats, berm seating, party zones and decks, picnic tables, kids’ zone, bars and a pool beyond the outfield wall. Designed to create a festival-like atmosphere in Downtown Summerlin, the site will be landscaped to complement the master planned community. Parking will be conveniently located on adjacent sites.
The groundbreaking will occur in early 2018, with the ballpark ready for the 2019 season.
