Cubs Fan or Indians Fan?
While the overall winner in the 2016 World Series is still yet to be determined, there is no denying that the Cubs’ Fans are already winners in their team’s long awaited expansion and renovation of Wrigley Field, now known as the 1060 Project.
Ground breaking for the Energy Efficient Sustainable Project began in October 2014, with most of the work to be completed off-season. Now, in 2016, most of the elements of this project have been completed with continued work on the Western Gate, Office Building and Plaza being done during the regular season.
As a friend to the environment, Wrigley Field is already acknowledged for its many green features. The improvements included many modern fan amenities, as well as player comforts, provided in an environmentally proficient method.
The Green Sustainable Initiatives that were executed in this project ranged from reducing water usage with more efficient fixtures while installing energy efficient hot water systems with energy management controls, to the installation of energy efficient heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems for fan suites, the player clubhouse and other club spaces.
And the improvements and renovations are not all just about sustainability. They have created more roaming space for Cubs Fans (and visiting fans alike), upgraded seating, bathrooms and dining options to escape long delays in lines thus enjoying more of their favorite team!
The best part of the project is that it will maintain the history of Wrigley Field for future generations to enjoy while it ensures that the ballpark remains an enjoyable, unique, friendly place to watch their 2016 National League Champions.
