CHICAGO — Wrigley Field has been under construction for what seems like, a century. But it’s almost done!
And a new time lapse video from EarthCam shows the progress from inside the Friendly Confines.
EarthCam says the video shows the works from October 2017 to April 2018.
To combat congestion in the concourses, the team removed concession kiosks, so all food and drink locations are in the brick and steel.
Wrigley has added restrooms and addressed one of the top complaints: cell service. The team has partnered with Xfinity to provide better access to wifi. The company promises this season wifi capacity will increase by 1,000 percent.
Even the Cubs opponents will have a better experience at Wrigley. Visiting teams have long complained that for all of Wrigley’s charm, it had the worst facilities for the visitors. Now the team has added a weight room, batting cage and video room for the visitors.
The competitive advantage is still with the Cubs
The dugouts have been widened 5 to 8 feet, shifted down the line and now boast two rows of benches
Above the dugouts – protective netting has been extended for fan safety.
The multi-year Wrigley renovation is nearly complete. The upper deck is scheduled to be renovated next off season.
