New Armstrong stadium making process

Save

The new Louis Armstrong Stadium at the US Open is starting to look like … a stadium.

The tournament posted nearly a dozen photos Wednesday that chronicle the progress in the big construction project, which was at a bare-bones stage just three months ago when work was halted during the 2017 edition of the event.

A temporary stadium seating about 8,000 was put up for 2017.

The new venue will seat about 14,000 and – this is the big work still to come – will have a retractable roof.

The original total cost of the tournament renovation project was pegged at $550 million.
