The renovated bleachers aren’t just the old space with new paint. There are new facilities and services throughout the outfield, in addition to new benches. The front row of the bleachers features the “Left Field Well,” with stools and room for groups to stand during the game. The well is split into three sections, each section holds between 15 and 25 people.
At the top of the left-field section sits the new group porch, which is set to open on June 11. The new area provides a higher angle for a wide view of the entire park, and fits up to 100 people. For the next few homestands, it’ll be open to fans with a regular bleacher ticket to check out the new view.
People in the bleachers means there’s a need for food — and a lot of it. The renovated outfield area has a new concession stand at the top of the left-center set of bleachers, plus one on the concourse level directly below. There’s also a new area for concession stands called The Platform, which is not yet completed.
That area, behind center field, at the bottom of the original Wrigley scoreboard, will feature multiple concession stands upon its completion in July. An additional eight-to-10 feet of width was added in some parts of the concourse during construction, making The Platform possible.
