Tampa Bay RaysSt. Petersburg, FL
The Tampa Bay Rays recruited PRA over the years to do a series of renovations to their existing stadium, Tropicana Field. The renovations included space along the third base-line, The Draft Room Season Ticket Club, second floor offices, and their center field fan location coined as “The Porch at Center Field.”
The Season Ticket Club blends hospitality and comfort to provide a unique experience for full season ticket holders. In addition to providing guests behind-the-scenes access to team staff, players, and coaches, the club features a variety of seating and entertainment options. The space is designed to feature the team’s brand identity and foster the passionate connection between season ticket holders and the baseball club.
On the second floor of Tropicana Field, PRA redesigned their existing 10,000 sq. ft. office space. The second floor houses the Information Technology, Human Resources, and more importantly the Ticket Sales Department. The Tampa Bay Rays requested a creative and dynamic design yet minimally disruptive and compatible with a quick construction schedule. Working within the existing rated enclosure, the new layout efficiently aligns enclosed offices on either side of an open office environment, providing daylight throughout the space. The design also includes a new conferencing area called the “Collaboration Burst”, which incorporates formal and informal meeting space to foster interaction and camaraderie among the Tampa Bay Rays staff.
The Porch at Center Field is a renovated space with a reimagined cigar bar and accompanying porch, designed to provide a one-of-a-kind gameday experience for visitors. The Porch in Center Field is a perfect representative of our commitment to help the Tampa Bay Rays provide one of the friendliest environments in sports and engage fans from their arrival to the final out.
