360 Architecture has released the conceptuals for the new stadium, I am not terribly impressed, especially for $1.7 billion. These are the only sites I have seen with pics up so far

Will it still be the Red Bulls stadium?

Looks like cheap piece of crap for 1.7 billion dollars, it should be made of gold with hovering roof for that kind of money.

The facade is pretty nice, but not 1.7 billion nice

What's it got that Giants stadium hasn't? Apart from the all important sky boxes?

I know, but Red Bull Park will not be enough for major games with attendance over 25,000 - so I assume they will still use the giants stadium for those type of games.

How of a cut does the mafia and politicians get to have such an enourmous price tags. That's like twice what it would cost to build elsewhere in Suburbia, USA

correct. big international games (WCQ's, etc..) would be held at new giants stadium
all MLS games and smaller international games would be held at Red Bull Park.

I love it
Everything from the interior with those large tv screens, the beautiful facade, landscape and the railway link... it's awesome.
When i go back to Jersey in the next couple of years i'll make sure to swing around the East Rutherford area and take a closer look for myself.

Great stadium. The 1.7 billion seems fair to me since it looks so modern, especially with those giant screens.

I'm not saying it's bad, but it's just no way 1.7 billion good. Or the public toilets there better be made of pure gold.

I can't believe people are complaining about this stadium. It looks awesome and can't wait to see its completion.

There is no need for a new one. The current one would have been fine with $400 million in rennovations.

So people actually think that it looks $1.7 billion good? There isn't anything particularly wrong with it (I don't find the core form particularly attractive, but thats a personal opinion). If you're paying that, you should expect the greatest design in the world, its okay, but personally would'nt go that far.

I agree with ya Ben. It looks good but it by no means looks great. For that money you would think they would be getting some superb innovative design or that it was located in Midtown or something.

It being NY it should be the country's premiere sporting facility and I have a hard time imagining that it will be. The outside does look a bit better to me then the inside from what I can tell. I would like to see a render from inside the stadium from the ones we are getting.

I would like to see renderings for the stadium they build in 30 years time when this one has become obsolete.
