“He [Bob Dunn] has done Lambeau field and he said there at the end that they used a lot of the space that they weren’t using and that’s what he said they could use at Soldier Field; all of the colonnade space they would enclose it and that’s where they get the extra space even though they’re still using the same footprint. They [Landmark Development] did Ford Field as well. They did U.S. Bank which we love. They know how to do this.”

“Soldier Field has always been criticized for being too old and too small. It would be a transparent ceiling and views of the lakefront and skyline would be focal points. Fan areas would be modern and entertaining. One of the most ideal parts is the improvement on transportation.”
El plan propuesto consistiría en construir una cúpula sobre la estructura actual del Soldier Field, y la mayor parte de las construcciones se llevarían a cabo en las zonas norte y sur del estadio para levantar las estructuras de soporte de la cúpula. El plan también incluye palcos, clubes y otros servicios.
