Almost two months ago, the Richmond Flying Squirrels announced the creation of a citizen advocacy group to lobby for the construction of a new ballpark on the Boulevard. The Squirrels are willing to contribute a construction-cost share equal to that of contributions made by area jurisdictions. The total cost of the proposed new stadium is estimated to be around $50 million.

Today the Squirrels released these two conceptual renderings of what a ballpark could look like.

Created by Populous, an international design firm specializing in sports architecture, the depicted ballpark reflects a “Richmondesque” design with brick exterior, a grass berm for outfield seating, a children’s play area and fixed seating for as many as 6,500 fans. With the outfield seating, total capacity would be approximately 9,000.

As illustrated, the ballpark is located on the Boulevard, just south of The Diamond’s current site.

Keep in mind that these renderings are both conceptual and hypothetical.
