Wrigley Field construction update: January 17, special nighttime edition

New, 38 comments

Here’s the ballpark all lit up for the construction project at night.

BCB’s David Sameshima had some time to stop by Wrigley Field on his way home from work Thursday and took this set of nighttime photos, a different look at the project than we’ve had previously this winter.

The most significant changes since our last update are in the left-field corner, where the steel superstructure for new seating in the left-field grandstand area now is over the entire area of the left field gate (or, as it was previously known, Gate K/J). This will likely mean the entire gate area for entry into the ballpark on Waveland will be reconfigured before Opening Day.

You can also see photos of the Harley-Davidson store that’s going to be opening soon in the Addison Clark project across the street from Wrigley Field. Motorcycles are already in the showroom.

It wasn’t too busy at Winterland at Gallagher Way, and as you can see by the video screen, the skating rink is only going to be open for another nine days. That’s about four weeks shorter than in previous winters; they might be using that area for construction staging after January 27.

We hope to have more photos here over the weekend.
