Marlins Park

This project consisted of the demolition of the existing Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida and the new construction of a baseball stadium to house the Miami Marlins baseball team. The estimated total construction cost for the stadium is approximately $634 million. One of the most noticeable features of the stadium is the 5.27-acre retractable roof and the retractable glass wall panels that offer a panoramic view of Downtown Miami. The Marlins Park is the first MLB stadium and the first retractable-roof stadium in any sport to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
