The Cubs are in the midst of the fourth year of the Wrigley Field renovations. For this season, Cubs business president Crane Kenney said two new elevators behind home plate will be operational by Opening Day.
New, bigger dugouts will be pushed down the first- and third-base lines toward the foul poles as the Cubs open their new premium club under the seats behind the plate.
Kenney said cellular reception will be improved this season.
The Hotel Zachary, across Clark Street, will be ready by Opening Day, and it will house a McDonald’s restaurant, which is scheduled to be open by St. Patrick’s Day.
Kenney said eight new concession stands in the main concourse will be finished by July, with portable stands operating until the permanent stands are ready.
