The second phase of the multi-year Rogers Centre renovation project, awarded to PCL Constructors Canada Inc, has begun.

The second phase of work is part of a $300 million multi-year renovation. It aims to convert the 34-year-old multi-purpose stadium into a ballpark through a series of projects aimed at modernising the fan experience. Moreover, constructing world-class player facilities for Canada’s baseball team.

“PCL and our partners are passionate about bringing the Toronto Blue Jays’ reimagined vision for Rogers Centre to life,” stated Monique Buckberger, vice president and district manager, PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (Toronto). “Following the complex, fast-track renovation was completed in just six months for the 2023 season, the second phase of the project will deliver an even greater volume of work in the same time frame, as the 100 level seating bowl is demolished and rebuilt to bring Blue Jays fans an experience designed specifically for baseball.”

On March 31, the first phase of the project was substantially completed.

The second phase of the makeover will include a reinvented 100-level seating bowl. In addition, a structure (from foul pole to foul pole) intended particularly for baseball viewing. Additionally, an all-new, best-in-class Blue Jays clubhouse and three new premium clubs and seating sections.

Premium Clubs at the Rogers Centre

The three new premium clubs are the Batting Tunnel Club, which is located behind home plate on the third base side, the Home Plate Club, which is immediately behind home plate, and The Lounge, which is located behind home plate on the first base side. A daily average of 350 workers has been on site. This is more than three times the number of workers in phase one demolition.
