Michigan Stadium Renovations Approved By Regents!
It went through!
The University of Michigan Regents voted to approve the renovations and expansion of Michigan Stadium.
Improved concessions, more restrooms, wider seats and aisles, a new press box, and the addition of enclosed seating are among the improvements to Michigan Stadium in a renovation plan approved by the University of Michigan Board of Regents today.The cost of the renovation and installation of a new press box and luxury seating is expected to be around $224 Million. The actual renovation will take approximately four years to complete. After the renovations are complete the Big House will seat over 108,000 people every Saturday, an attendance increase of 1,000.
With regard to the luxury boxes:
The overall plan includes building two multi-story structures on both the east and west sides of the stadium; the end zones will remain open. The west-side structure will include an elevated concourse, a new press box for media and game operations, new "club" seats with chairbacks, and enclosed seating. The east-side structure will include an elevated concourse with new concessions and restrooms, and additional indoor and outdoor seating.Today is a good day. Ed Martin should receive a pat on the back and a cookie. Job well done.
