Timbers Unveil Plan To Expand Providence Park To 25,000 Seats
The Timbers are "moving forward" with a privately funded $50M stadium expansion plan that "would add four new levels and approximately 4,000 new seats to the east side of Providence Park." The Timbers, who today unveiled a rendering of their expansion design, have been in "active discussions" with Portland and are "set to submit their proposal to the City's Design Commission this week." The club partnered with Portland-based Allied Works Architecture on an expansion design that they "believe will preserve the intimate fan experience" while "raising capacity to roughly 25,000." No existing seats "will be impacted" (OREGONLIVE.com, 4/26).
