An early glimpse at the Progressive Field updates coming to Cleveland in 2024 and 2025

This week, the Cleveland Guardians announced changes that will be made to Progressive Field over the next couple of years. With the 2023 baseball season just 2.5 months away, it’s obviously too late to begin construction on such vast changes. Therefore, 2023 will be used as a design development until the season concludes. Construction will begin after the season, with some renovations being completed by opening day in 2024. The rest of the renovations would begin a year after that, to be completed by opening day in 2025.

The video below, which was posted to the Guardians’ Twitter account, shows all of the artist renderings in detail for things like the Upper Deck Experience, Terrace Hub (to replace the Terrace Club), Dugout Club, and more.

After work on Friday, I decided to shoot my first video in Cleveland during the year 2023, walking around Progressive Field to talk about the changes and overlay some still shots of the renderings. The biggest change will be the removal of the giant blocks in right field’s upper deck by 2024, which have been largely unused since the last renovation. Instead, an open air experience will liven up the area. In left field, the Terrace Club will morph into the Terrace Hub in 2025, converting it to an open air space. Similarly, the upper deck in left field will be an open air beer garden.

In other nearby Downtown Cleveland news, Bedrock bought the 3-acre site that was previously supposed to be developed by Stark Enterprises. It currently sits as a parking lot across from Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse. Big, flat parking lots have been disappearing in Downtown Cleveland, including at the new City Club Apartments and Sherwin Williams headquarters. However, at this time, there are no details on what the site will be used for — but Bedrock is certainly increasing their footprint in Cleveland.
