FOUR WINDS FIELD

      LOCATION: South Bend, Indiana
      BUDGET: $11 Million
      CLIENT CONTACT: Andrew Berlin
      PROJECT MANAGER: David Rafinski
      AWARD: 2012 Ballpark Renovation
      of the Year

Over the past eight years, JPR has worked with the South Bend Cubs organization to turn Four Winds Field into a quality of fan experience that other stadiums look to achieve. Four Winds Field has countless amenities for fans, and it does not disappoint.

This project consisted of the development of a 360-degree concourse that included terraced picnic areas in both left and right fields, a new home run deck in left field, an 8,500 sq. ft. commissary building, renovations to the existing suites and press box, the renovation of an existing Indiana Historic Landmarks Building into the new Team Store, a water splash pad, a performance stage, a new center field entrance, batting cages, and a new kids fun zone. In addition, the existing natural turf field will be replaced with synthetic turf to minimize maintenance costs and to allow for additional on-field venues.

The site design concept in and around the park focused on pedestrian and visual connectivity to the downtown area. The design will provide pedestrian corridors and plazas, enable better traffic flow of surrounding streets, better manage game time traffic volumes, and create commercial and entertainment opportunities.

The South Bend Cubs organization was awarded for all of their efforts as the Four Winds Field received the 2012 Ballpark Renovation of the Year award from Ballpark Digest!!! Click here for more information regarding the award.
