Crawford Architects has been selected to lead a multi-disciplined team planning for a new stadium and site redevelopment of the entire 100-acre + Aloha Stadium site in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Crawford Architects will lead an international team of partners to transform the stadium and surrounding area into a vibrant sports and entertainment district that will be anchored by the new Aloha Stadium and transportation development.
Stacey Jones, Crawford Architects’ senior principal said:
Our team is excited to bring our world-class expertise in planning and urban design to the Aloha Stadium project.
We look forward to collaborating and exploring many options to create an extraordinary solution for the stadium and adjacent neighbourhood.
Aloha Stadium, which opened in 1975, is Hawaii’s largest outdoor facility, home to the University of Hawaii’s Rainbow Warriors football team and former host of the NFL Pro Bowl.
The 50,000-seat stadium can be configured to offer multiple seating arrangements and field formations that allowed football, soccer and baseball. Jones added:
With the energy of a new stadium and the rail and transit-oriented development, we anticipate the area will attract state-wide events and provide a thriving and diverse community with opportunities to live, work and play.
