I am sure that I speak for all NY Met Fans when I say…nothing, just stare at the TV in disbelief. What will go down in history as one of the biggest chokes in sports history has happened right in our backyard. Approximately 17 days ago the NY Mets had a 7 game lead in their division and were all but assured a playoff berth. Yesterday’s loss assured them of the contrary as they were officially knocked out of the playoff’s.
However, today is Monday and we must look on the bright side. In another year or so we will be moving into the new Citi Field Stadium. With the hard work of more than 400 skilled professionals, construction of Citi Field continues to progress at an accelerated pace this summer. I am blown as I witness the daily progress on my way to the 3Dwalkthroughs.com office every day. To see 3D Walkthroughs and 3D Renderings of the new Citi Field stadium go Here>>>
Progress Update Taken From NY Mets Website.
Approximately 70% of Citi Field’s structural steel frame has been installed.
More than 60% of the stadium concrete plank – the tiered concrete structures that will support the stadium seats – has been installed. This now includes the seating areas for the main concourse as well as portions of the Suite Level.
Out in center field, the main scoreboard steel supports have been set in place and the bridge at the Diamond Plaza that will one day overlook the bullpens has been constructed.
The brick façade, or architectural precast, is well on its way to totally enclosing the administration building, including the future retail/storefront space that fronts 126th Street. Fans traveling down Roosevelt Avenue can also see the rich brick exterior enveloping the south side of Citi Field continuing its march toward the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.
