The $17 million overhaul of Loeb Stadium in Lafayette is in its final planning stages. The Journal & Courier says the overall design of the project is complete, which includes flipping the field, an additional suite and a new entrance designed to be a more visible landmark.
Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski unveiled plans for the reimagining of the more than 75-year-old stadium in 2017. The city council earlier this month approved a $17 million bond to fund the project. A final reading is set for February 4.
Roswarski tells the publication the city and developers are "98 percent done" with the design portion of the project. The new Loeb Stadium is scheduled to open in 2021.
Indianapolis-based American Structurepoint is designing the multi-use facility and Kettlehut Construction of Lafayette will manage the two phases of construction. Roswarski tells the Journal & Courier "the goal is to be ready for baseball in 2021."
