On Monday, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot proposed several plans costing between $900 million and $2.2 billion to upgrade Soldier Field in a desperate bid to entice the Chicago Bears to remain in her increasingly dangerous city.
Lightfoot’s Soldier Field fantasy came in three proposed plans that would either erect a dome over the historic outdoor stadium located near Chicago’s Lake Front or would build new domed facilities. She also proposed that the projects would be suitable for concerts and soccer games.
Here are the released renderings of a proposed “Dome” renovation of Soldier Field released by the Mayor’s office today. There are three possible renovations for the stadium – two of which include the expansion of the stadium to 70,000. @WGNNews pic.twitter.com/oYiBPVNVyi
