    Portland AAA Stadium Concept

    Definitely would've been something to add in the ballpark village deal I talked about incorporating! I may have to give that a try! Appreciate the feedback, especially on the seats (something to fix next time). All things considered, I'm glad you noticed the Haymarket Park influence (going to be a baseball student manager there this year), but maybe I used it a bit too much. Once again, appreciate the feedback, definitely gives some room for improvement next time.

    Portland AAA Stadium Concept

    Appreciate the feedback! I may play around with some stuff outside the stadium and create a Ballpark Village/Power and Light live type deal around the stadium just to add to the realism. Appreciate the feedback and the concern, but here's the math I did. The stadium definitely has 9000+ seats, and the research I did indicated I made the seats close to the right dimensions, but there's definitely a chance I could have made them too small, thus having more seats in total than there really should be if they were the correct size. Much appreciated! Nope! Just a Spurs fan! #GSG

    Portland AAA Stadium Concept

    Hello all, what I have is a stadium design that I have created in Google Sketchup! I've posted some other ones on here over the years, but I think I can say this is the most detailed stadium I have ever designed thus far. The stadium is set in Portland, but unfortunately, I couldn't quite figure out how to put real Portland buildings in the back (will keep trying). Here's some basic info on the Bing Stadium. Name: Bing Stadium (Named after Portland Mavericks founder Bing Russell) Capacity: (I estimated the total seat numbers after completion, but the numbers should be pretty accurate) Lower Seating: 8092 Upper Seating (Not including suites): 1040 Suite Seating: 320 Standing Room Only: ~500-1000 Total Fixed Seating: ~9452 Maximum Capacity ~10,000-11,000 Dimensions: LF - 330' CF - 411' RF - 315' As far as the standard goes, this is pretty on par with some of the larger AAA markets, which I think Portland mixes in with pretty well. Enough with the chit-chat, here come the pics! Here's a general view of the stadium, like I touched on above, I'm a little disappointed I couldn't throw in some Portland landscape around it, as I think it would've made it look a lot better. There will be some other close-ups, but from here you can get a gist of the general design of the stadium. I tried to go for an industrial look. so the concourse is mostly brick with some large windows (Camden Yards heavily influenced this choice). The roof is a metal material, and you'll see some more industrial designs throughout the shots. Becuase this stadium is in Portland (hypothetically), I tried to incorporate a lot of outdoorsy elements, which is the reason for a lot of the green spaces throughout the park (see parks 1 & 2). I didn't really do the research, but just off the top of my head, I don't believe any other stadium (major or minor league) has a rock wall (or anything similar) in their park, so I used that as a unique element that differentiates Bing Stadium and also fits the outdoors theme. I placed that on the side of the large building in center field, which is a multi-use facility (smaller team store, can rented out for events, etc.). The right field plaza is 25' above the playing surface, complete with a built-in bar so fans can stand/sit and watch the game from atop the right field wall. Here's a nice view from dead center, behind home plate reads "Welcome to Portland" (Sorry if that's a little hard to make out). From here you can see the full work of the support trusses for the overhang, which I think turned out nicely (not to toot my own horn!). Here's a view from slightly behind the above photo. As touched on in the top view photo, you can see the rockwall (on left) and the kids field, along with the pine trees that form a (natural looking) batters eye. Here we have another outfield view, this time from the left field corner, right near the entrance to Gate 2 (see top view). Not much new to see here, except it does show how the warehouse building runs down the first baseline a little better than some other views. Here's the view from the left field bleacher seats, which hold exactly 120 people (3 sections of 3 rows x 20 seats/row). Pretty decent views from down the line, drew some inspiration for these from the fountain seats at Kauffman. Here's the last outfield view from down the right field line. I put a decent sized building in this plaza area which has 1 concession stand, mens/womens restrooms, and several ticket offices. Another nice view of the backstop from here, as well as the shorter side of the lower bowl. Another thing to note (view coming shortly) are the two standing room areas above the suites in the upper deck. I would envision these as a higher access area (could be rented out as well) with nice views of the city behind (sorry!) and the field. Here's a view from the first base deck that I just touched on above. You can also see the scoreboard (fairly simplistic), the berm, and the left field bleacher seating. Here's a view from the third baseline (section 121 to be specific). You can see the right field plaza pretty well from here (25' high), with the "Keep Portland Weird" text above the 10' padding. Here's one of the better all-encompassing views from right behind home plate. Pretty self-explanatory here, pretty good sightlines of the field, scoreboard, and outfield plaza. The other thing to take note of are the pine trees along the left field wall, create a nice field backdrop (in my opinion). A little backstory on these, I wanted to recreate something similar to the Kauffman Stadium fountains, but I felt like the water feature would be too similar in feel, and wouldn't fit the outdoor theme as well, so I went with a ton (maybe too many) of trees instead. To be blunt, this isn't a great view as far as seeing details go, but I wanted to show how the field would look from the batter's box, mostly just to show that I had created a decent batter's eye. Here's a view of the bullpen area. I drew heavy inspiration from Coors field on this one, and that inspiration kind of pushed the whole outfield aesthetic I went for. Small little detail to notice is the "PDX" text on the side of the building in RF, just another city pride element I tried to throw in there. I have plenty more renderings for y'all, but I don't want to bore you with a ton of images, so feel free to check out the following links to explore some more!

I know I have come up with some of my own, so feel free to use the following as a jumping off point for any C&C: Building Down the 1st Baseline - I am absolutely in love with this building. I think that if it's a pre-existing structure that was built around (hypothetically) then it wouldn't be a problem, but I don't know if a building of that size is worth the money to construct just for the sake of design. Small Details - I concession stands, tables, etc. No excuses for that one, but since this just for fun, I neglected to throw those in there, which is on me. Trees and Bushes - I have a gut feeling that there may be too many of them or that they are too tall Overall, I am personally happy with how it turned out, but I'm anxious to hear the feedback, positive and negative (always looking to improve, so please leave some constructive C&C and ways I can improve!!). Thanks for the time to read through all of it!

    I love the uniforms themselves, but the presentation is absolutely incredible. Great work!

    The Memphis color scheme is interesting, but I think it definitely works. I really dig the front striping as well, I think it looks great.

    As a Spurs fan, I really dig to Toros identity, especially the alternate Texas logo. Definitely retains the feel of the parent club while differentiating itself enough to stand out. Maybe fiesta colors? Great work either way!
  7. Great stuff so far. I really dig the leaf inside the Pinnacles logo, it's a nice touch. Also like the color scheme, the contrast with the yellow/white on the red/green and vice versa is dope. Looking forward to teams to come!

    The black uniform looks very sharp. Can’t wait to see the Monarchs!

    Just a heads up, most of the Sixers jerseys read “Phila” as opposed to “Philia” as you have. Regardless of that, I dig the jerseys, especially the Magic’s subliminal star pattern. Good work! Look forward to seeing the Spurs!
