Wrigley Renderings: Some Features Would Recall 1930s Design
Newly released renderings of the Cubs' $300M Wrigley Field renovation proposal show that the project "calls for re-creating green terra-cotta canopies, along with the windows and wrought-iron fencing, that graced parts of Wrigley's exterior in the 1930s." The plans also include "a 6,000-square-foot, three-panel video screen atop the left field wall," a 1,000-square-foot sign in right field and "four new signs ringing the outfield." Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney: "This is not trying to make Wrigley new. It's actually trying to make Wrigley old" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 5/1).
