Well done, QBFC. I'm incredibly excited about this. Biggest professional soccer infrastructure development in the city, perhaps ever?

Someone buy the Cosmos and have them do exactly this in Brooklyn, and NYCFC will eventually get theirs done, and soccer has officially arrived in NYC.
commisso wont sell the cosmos ( even if they are technically in hiatus now) until he wins that pro/ rel lawsuit, and that may not ever happen here.

Based on the round building in the rendering, I think this is where the specific site is.
View attachment 11161

The round building circled in red is where NY State is giving vaccines. I've been there 3 times (for family and myself) in the last 4-5 weeks and know it well. The blue rectangle is where it appears the stadium is going. It's not really big.

Look North across the train track and Archer Avenue and you can see the nearest subway, and the more commercial section of Jamaica. Stay on that side and go 4-5 blocks west (left) and you have Jamaica Station.
C'mon man, try to keep up. You're a year and a half behind! LOL

QBFC obviously saw your work and realized an RBA-sized arena would not fit, so they downscaled as necessary to fit the space in today's renderings.

The temporary Louis Armstrong Stadium for the U.S. Open a couple of years ago sat 8,800 and was surrounding a tennis court and not a much larger sized soccer field. Plus, most of that were grandstands going up on the sides with very little seating at the ends.

Long story short, you can use modular seating to get a lot more than 7,500 if you want to do so an have the room. Now, whether that would afford a second deck is unclear.

They can probably also expand capacity during the offseason if they see a need. Just buy some more legos.

It got hot watching tennis on a sunny day with these metal bleachers.

Try the Supporters Section bleachers at YS on a July afternoon. For any other Miyazaki fans out there

Yeah, I did that the first season but after that I got seats in 224 under the 300 level overhang for sun and rain protection. I do miss the fun/craziness of the section but it's nice to have seats, ya know? I guess that means I'm an old or something. Alas.
