SCOTTSDALE GIANTS SPRING TRAINING FACILITY
The overall design approach is one that respects and compliments the existing stadium architecture in terms of scale, modulation and builds upon the existing predominant character vs. just replicating what exists today. The site design responds to the surroundings and takes advantage of pedestrian connections and sight lines to the main entry points of the facility. The new clubhouse/event center promotes connections to the multi-use parking area and practice field , creating one long, scalable multi-use venue. Overall, the improvements in the building and plazas are intended to activate the entire space along Osborn Road and Drinkwater Boulevard from game day to conferences to farmers markets and more.
Several structural components removed from the existing facility were thoughtfully repurposed to create a more prominent and familiar shade canopy in the entrance plaza. The objective was twofold: to divert a substantial load from the landfill and to implement a more welcoming approach to the stadium.
DWL is proud to have been part of such a robust and expert team to deliver each phase of this project. In partnership with Populous and long list of vital stakeholders, we were able to fast track every stage and complete work between Cactus League seasons.
DWL continues our work at the Scottsdale Stadium with a Masterplan refresh and now moving into the next phases of design. We are thankful to all the stakeholders for their partnership, trust and vision for the future.
