The Vikings are finally getting the stadium that they, and the city of Minneapolis, deserve.
After years in the planning, the aged, but once innovative Metrodome is being replaced with a cutting edge stadium, in both design and function, which will transform this part of the city’s skyline.
Being constructed on the site of the now demolished Metrodome, the Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium, aka US Bank Stadium, consists of an enclosed multi-level football stadium, configurable for other venues.
Its statistics are impressive; once completed it will contain approximately 1,752,262 gross sq. ft. of space, with a 65,028 seating capacity, expandable up to 73,523 for a super bowl venue and a total of 116 suites. There will be 9 levels from the Event Level up to the Upper Seating Bowl.
The design of the stadium is innovative.
In keeping with its commitment to being environmentally friendly, the building is designed to obtain LEED Silver certification.
Merritt and Harris is proud to have been chosen as a consultant on the construction monitoring of this iconic building.
