Las Vegas Ballpark
Kimley-Horn partnered with the Howard Hughes Corporation to design a new home for the Las Vegas Aviators baseball team, the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics. The 10,000-seat Las Vegas Ballpark serves as a replacement for the team’s former home at Cashman Field, where the Aviators (formerly the 51s) resided since 1983.
The Kimley-Horn team provided land development civil engineering design services for the ballpark. The new stadium is located in Downtown Summerlin, directly adjacent to the Red Rock Casino and Hotel as well as the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights headquarters and practice facility—also completed by Kimley-Horn. Our scope of work included: entitlements, surveying, due diligence, permitting, on-/off-site civil engineering, stormwater management, dry utility coordination, a pedestrian study, parking development and design, and stakeholder coordination between the Town of Summerlin, the Las Vegas Aviators, and HOK. In addition to 10,000 seats, the ballpark includes 22 suites, several bars, a kids zone, and a center-field pool.
The team broke ground in February 2018, and the stadium opened in time for the 2019 Triple-A Pacific Coast League season. With a tight schedule, the project was fast tracked and permitted to start grading within only months of Kimley-Horn commencing work. We understand the significance of a project schedule with a key opening date, and worked diligently with the project team to collaborate toward achieving that goal.
