Today the University of Cincinnati released some new renderings for the Nippert Stadium renovation. You can find a whole host of pictures here. Nothing much has changed as far as basic facts of the project go:

  • $86 million price tag for the renovation
  • Construction timeline begins in December of this year, ends in August of 2015
  • Bearcats will play at Paul Brown Stadium for the 2014 football season
  • 1,500 club seats, 18 suites
  • Upon completion, capacity will reach 40,000

But what is newsworthy are the actual renderings that accommodate this release. Unlike before, we are getting a more accurate look at what the renovations on the west side of the stadium will look like upon completion. The first thing I noticed was how truly menacing the new press box looks, towering over the field and opposing team’s sidelines like a giant overlooks a small village. It truly makes an already imposing Nippert Stadium even more imposing. Overall, the renderings for press box has evolved into something more realistic. Here’s a quick comparison:

The differences in the structure of the press box are pretty obvious. I don’t think there have been many tweaks other than to the aesthetics and quite honestly I like the slightly new direction UC is going with the design.
