Populous wins national award for Target Field design

Target Field, the new Minnesota Twins ballpark designed by Kansas City-based Populous architects, has been named Sports Facility of the Year by a national sports business publication. The ballpark in downtown Minneapolis, which also has its own light-rail station, completed its first season last year. The award was announced Wednesday at a ceremony in New York City by Street & Smith’s Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily. In winning the honor, Target Field topped three other Populous-designed sports facilities including the Arrowhead Stadium renovation project. The others were Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic, and Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The New Meadowlands Stadium designed by 360 Architecture of Kansas City, home of the New York Giants and Jets, also was a finalist. The honor by Street & Smith’s was the latest accolade for Target Field
