Greenville Ballpark - Fluor Field at the West End945 South Main Street
Greenville, SC 29601
Design Achievement - This new ballpark is the focal point of revitalization in downtown Greenville. DLR Group's design fits the facility nicely along Main Street and features traditional brick and metal materials similar to those found on its neighboring industrial and warehouse buildings. Renovation to an existing firehouse near the main street entry plaza repositions that building to now be used as the team's ticketing outlet and novelty store for fans. The stadium pays homage to the Greenville Drive's affiliate team, the Boston Red Sox, and includes an asymmetrical, natural grass playing field; a large replica of the manual scoreboard; and a 30 ft. green wall along the left field wall that is reminiscent of the "Green Monster" at Fenway Park.
Scope Summary - Fluor Field seats 5,000 people. Fan amenities include 18 suites and a roof-top party deck. Reclaimed brick from an old textile mill is used throughout the facility. In 2006, Fluor Field and West End was selected as Ballpark of the Year by baseballparks.com. DLR Group provided planning, architecture, interiors, and engineering services for this project.
