To read more about HOK's design process, we suggest reading the Biz of Baseball interview with Earl Santee of HOK. These images are available there, as well, along with renderings from the New Nationals Ballpark design, the proposed designs for the Marlins and Twins, and renderings for Busch III


The NY Mets unveiled their new ballpark design today. The architect chosen for the job is HOK. As the press release from the Mets reports:

The New York Mets today unveiled the architectural and design plans for their new ballpark. The Mets will begin construction on the innovative state-of-the-art facility designed specifically for baseball later this year in the outfield parking lot between Shea Stadium and 126th Street. The Mets expect to complete construction by Opening Day 2009, which will usher in a new era of unprecedented sightlines, amenities, and comfort for Mets fans, sports fans, and visitors to the New York metropolitan area.

The open-air Mets Ballpark connects the Mets' National League heritage to the future and to the City through a number of unique design elements. The new venue will feature natural grass and capacity for approximately 45,000 fans within the 1.26 million square foot facility. A contoured seating configuration will bring spectators closer to the field on all levels to provide optimal sightlines for a more intimate and entertaining experience throughout the park.

The Mets will construct the new ballpark at their own expense; the Mets estimate the amount of their total private investment to be approximately $550 million. In addition, the City will contribute $90 million in capital funds, and the State will contribute $75 million in addition to rent credits, in order to fund infrastructure costs related to the project. The Mets will enter into a lease with an expected term of at least 35 years.

"Today marks a new era in Mets baseball, as we unveil plans for a brand new state-of-the-art ballpark - one that will dramatically enhance the experience of fans, provide the team with even better facilities, and stimulate the regional economy," said Governor George E. Pataki. "This great project will solidify the Amazins' future in New York by providing a world-class entertainment and sports facility that will create thousands of jobs, hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue and spur further investment and opportunity right here in Queens. I want to thank Fred and Jeff Wilpon, and Saul Katz for believing in New York, investing in New York, and giving another generation of New Yorkers the chance to feel the unique excitement and pride that is Mets baseball."

"The Mets new ballpark, which will be built in the parking lot to the east of Shea, will merge the intimate feel of the old, classic ballparks like Brooklyn's Ebbets Field with the amenities of today's modern sports facilities, and further enhance our efforts to redevelop neighboring Willets Point and Flushing," said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. "Our breakthrough agreement with the Mets helped to create the foundation for a beautiful new home for the team while at the same time relieving the City of its obligation to maintain Shea Stadium, thereby saving taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. We thank the Mets for taking on the financial responsibility of building, operating, and maintaining a new ballpark that will serve baseball fans throughout the City, and that will create more than 6,000 construction jobs and preserve the 1,000 full-time jobs currently at Shea while also generating tens of millions of dollars in incremental fiscal revenue for the City and State over the life of the new lease."

"The 'new millennium' Mets will have a new and improved facility to call home," said State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. "While New Yorkers look forward to this sparkling venue as a home for their beloved Mets, they also see it as a catalyst to spark development from here to Willets Point. Speaking for the New York State Assembly and especially for the members of our Queens Assembly Delegation, I join all New Yorkers in saying, 'Let's Go Mets!'"

"The new Mets Ballpark is a spectacular showcase for the Borough of Queens that creates new jobs for Queens residents and opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses in our community," said Queens Borough President Helen Marshall. "The Mets have been a Queens treasure since the club moved to Flushing in 1964 and the new ballpark continues our efforts in making Flushing Meadows Corona Park a premier venue for spectator and participatory sports."

"Our new ballpark is the realization of a dream - to create a world-class environment and enduring experience for everyone, especially for the best fans in all of sports," said Fred Wilpon, Chairman of the Board & CEO, New York Mets. "This new ballpark will become the home our fans have long deserved, one created for shared celebrations among future generations of Mets fans."

"The new Mets Ballpark will become a destination attraction for enjoyment of fans in the borough of Queens, residents of the tri-state area, and those visiting New York City. It will be one of the finest sports and entertainment facilities in the world," said Jeff Wilpon, COO, New York Mets. "We thank the Borough, City, and State for their financial commitment and support of our private financing for this ambitious project."

"The public investment through this new partnership with the Mets will deliver a very favorable return over the span of the agreement," said Charles A. Gargano, Chairman, Empire State Development Corporation. "We salute the Mets for their vision and dedication toward bringing this landmark development for the Borough, City, and State to fruition."

"The New Mets Ballpark will play an integral role in the revitalization of the entire Flushing area and the redevelopment of Willets Point," said Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff. "The project brings thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions in private investment to an area of the City that needs both."

The new ballpark is expected to generate tens of millions of dollars in incremental fiscal revenue for the City and State over the next 37 years. Construction of the stadium is expected to create more than 6,000 temporary, full-time equivalent jobs, while ongoing stadium operations are expected to result in nearly 1,000 permanent full-time equivalent jobs.

The City and State have been working with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) on both short term and long term options to make additional transit service available for Mets fans and to encourage more fans to take mass transit to games. There will be additional service on MTA New York City Transit's 7 Subway line, with as many as 14 additional trains available on weeknights and up to 12 additional trains available on weekends and after matinee games. MTA Long Island Rail Road service has also been expanded on the Port Washington branch line. The MTA is also working on additional marketing and promotional efforts with the Mets that will encourage the use of public transportation.

A 3-D virtual video tour as well as renderings and a comprehensive overview of the new Mets Ballpark are available at The highlights of the project are as follows:


  • Superior Sightlines: The ballpark's baseball-specific design produces superior sightlines for the game throughout the venue. There is a more intimate atmosphere with seating angled toward the infield and set down closer to the field. Forty-two percent of the ballpark's seats will be located in the Concourse (or lowest) level.
  • Vastly Improved Access, Egress, and Circulation: The new ballpark will feature some of the widest unobstructed concourses in new sports facilities and will be fully ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant in order to facilitate circulation and provide easy access to amenities for all fans while maintaining sight of the field. Concession stands and restrooms will be located within the facility's exterior walls, leaving the circulation areas unobstructed and with uninterrupted views of the field.
  • Spacious seating: Wider seats provide enhanced comfort throughout the venue while more space between the rows allows for improved legroom.
  • Field Views: The Concourse level features 360-degree, walk-around circulation around the ballpark with expansive field views and ample standing room. The ballpark's outfield entry and Concourse level walkway will provide open views of the bullpens. The Promenade level features a split-deck design providing uninterrupted views to the field.
  • Fewer Lines, More Time to Watch the Game: The fan-friendly design provides enhanced conveniences with more elevators, more concession areas, and more restrooms and fixtures throughout the facility to reduce waiting times, enabling all fans to enjoy more of the action on the field.
  • New Restaurants, Suites, Clubs: Fans throughout the ballpark will have access to multiple sit-down, climate-controlled restaurants, bars, clubs, and lounges, a majority of which will provide field views, and a wide range of menu choices. A restaurant in the left field corner will seat 500 fans. Premium and suite facilities, along with an auditorium with corporate meeting facilities, make the ballpark an ideal location for group and client entertainment.
  • Family-Friendly Attractions: Numerous permanent attractions built into the master plan add to the new ballpark's family-friendly environment, including: an expanded Fan Fest family entertainment area within the ballpark on the Concourse level, "The Orchard" enhanced outfield Picnic Area adjacent to the batter's eye, multiple party deck areas, and an interactive Mets museum with club memorabilia and Hall of Fame displays.


  • Inspired by Tradition: Paying tribute to Ebbets Field (Brooklyn, 1913-57), classic design elements include brick and limestone arches with keystones and arched mullions in the glass. The exterior façade is punctuated by granite and limestone pilasters topped with decorative capitals, and bronze commemorative plaques. Wide pedestrian walkways facilitate circulation and lead fans to the main entry rotunda behind home plate which features a glass and steel canopy overhead. Inspired by tradition, the ballpark's classic architecture will play a central part of the cultural landscape of the Flushing Meadows Corona Park neighborhoods.
  • Building Materials: The new Mets Ballpark will be clad in brick, limestone, granite, and cast stone, with the brick closely resembling the masonry used at Ebbets Field, both in color and texture. Exposed steel will be painted dark blue and the seats will be dark green.
  • Bridging Generations and the Boroughs: A structural steel "bridge" motif throughout the new ballpark reinforces the Mets' connection to New York's five boroughs while also symbolically linking the team's storied tradition to its future. Design elements call for exposed trusses, light towers, scoreboard structure, and a roof canopy that recall the ballparks of yesteryear.


  • Parking & Transit: The project will maintain parking capacity at 8,800 spaces while the venue's more intimate seating capacity will reduce traffic and parking demand, thus improving access and egress. Main entry rotunda adjacent to Flushing 7 line station.
  • Landscaped Plazas: A landscaped plaza around the ballpark will welcome fans and improve access and egress. At the home plate, first and third base sides, the plaza extends out up to 100 feet, creating a landscaped buffer to the parking area to create space for pre- and post-game activities, vendors, and other amenities. Trees and banners will line the footpaths, which also will depict highlights of club history to enhance the overall experience of the game and its ambient environment for the fans.
  • Ease of Entry: There are five major pedestrian entrances at street level: home plate, adjacent to first base, third base, and outfield (126th Street) and at the north side. The back-of-house facilities will be located along the north side of the ballpark. The orientation of the ballpark, adjacent to the Passerelle extension to the 7 Subway/Long Island Railroad, is consistent with Major League Baseball standards and will create a traditional entry at home plate for the majority of the fans arriving by mass transit.
  • Connection to City: Various areas of the new ballpark will reinforce the setting of the venue and the Mets connection to the City of New York and baseball history, including: the Ebbets Club behind the plate, Coogan's Landing beyond the left field fence, the "East Side" stands in right field, and "The Orchard" picnic area in center field.
  • Mets Headquarters: A three-story, 100,000 square foot building, along 126th Street, will house the Mets executive offices, as well as retail space and other amenities. One of the primary entrance points to the ballpark, an arched entrance through and under the building, will allow fans a view into the ballpark 365 days a year.


  • Field Orientation: The four-acre natural turf field will expand from home plate in a northeasterly direction with the left field line stretching northward, and the right field line extending eastward.
  • Right Field Porch: In right field there will be a singular deck that will be situated to extend into and over fair territory by eight feet.
  • Pitcher Friendly: Distinctive asymmetrical outfield walls, along with generous dimensions (LF - 335'; LC - 379'; CF - 408'; RC - 391'; RF - 330') make for a traditional pitcher's park.


  • Collaboration of Industry Leaders: Sterling Equities, the Mets ownership group, has experience in the development and management of premium New York City properties, as well as new minor league ballparks in Coney Island and Port St. Lucie, Fla. The new ballpark project is being developed by Mets Development Company, L.L.C. and has been designed by the internationally renowned architects of HOK Sport. HOK Sport has designed and renovated 13 of the 30 Major League ballparks in use today and seven of the last eight to open in Major League Baseball. Hunt-Bovis, a joint venture of Hunt Construction Group and Bovis Lend Lease, will provide construction management.
  • Minority and Women Owned Business Initiative: The Mets have partnered with an advisory committee of community leaders chaired by Borough President Marshall to develop a comprehensive diversity plan that will ensure the involvement of minority- and women-owned businesses in Queens and the immediate area. A copy of the MWBE Program was distributed at the press event today and is available from the New York Mets.
