Architect Magazine featured CHS Field on their Top 15 for 2015 list, asking voters to choose their favorite among 15 top projects of the year! Replacing outdated Midway Field as the home of the independent baseball league Saints, Lowertown Saint Paul’s new $63 million CHS Field incorporates aspects of the city’s historic architecture with blackened steel, timber, and load-bearing masonry. The ballpark features 95,000 square feet of turf, seating for approximately 7,000 spectators, three clubhouses, and a view of the city from every angle. Anticipated to host more than 200 concerts and sporting events annually, it is among the most affordable, handicapped-accessible, and environmentally sustainable professional sports arenas in the country.
So far, CHS Field takes the lead. Cast your vote!
MG McGrath worked with the Saint Paul Saints and Snow Krielich Architects to help achieve the ballpark’s historic Lowertown architectural look, furnishing and installing 40,000 square feet of custom-cut cedar wood soffits with a clear coat finish, 10,000 square feet of 16ga weathering steel wall paneling in a custom blackened finish, and all associated flashings.
