ICON Venue Group was hired by the Chicago Cubs to manage the expansion and restoration of Wrigley Field, a historic MLB stadium in Chicago, Illinois. The project, titled The 1060 Project began in the 2014 offseason and will ensure the viability of the ballpark for future generations of Cubs fans, while preserving the beauty, charm and historic features.
The expansion and restoration plan includes structural updates; improved player facilities; new signage, including video boards in left and right field; expanded concessions; new and improved restroom facilities and much more. The primary focus for the first phase, completed during the 2014 offseason, was infrastructure work and the expansion and improvement of the left- and right-field Budweiser Bleachers.
Subsequent phases are addressing improvement and expansion of player facilities; new bullpens and batting tunnels; new restrooms, concessions, seats, luxury suites, clubs, restaurants, retail and entertainment spaces for fans; additional commissary space for food preparation and an improved press box.
In addition to managing the renovation of historic Wrigley Field, ICON is overseeing the Ricketts Family Neighborhood Development including a hotel, office space, fitness club, retail space, related infrastructure and open-air plaza adjacent to the ballpark.
