City Upgrades Ballpark Construction Cam

Visitors to the City’s website (www.elpasotexas.gov) will notice that the Ballpark Construction Cam has been upgraded and now offers a crisper view of activities at the site of the future Triple-A stadium. The live feed can also be viewed at the Triple-A ball club’s website, elpasotriplea.com.

The live camera, which was mounted at the top of the downtown DoubleTree Hotel earlier this year, provides a bird’s eye view of construction crews working to make the stadium a reality. Visitors to the cam website can get a live video feed at any time of the day.

Vertical construction has clearly started at the site, with ground-level pillars and walls going up at the base of the main stadium structure. The second-level foundation is now being worked on at the western edge of the property which will be street-level with Durango Street.

The elpasotriplea.com website also contains
a link to the live video stream.
Completion of the stadium is scheduled for April 2014, in time for opening day of the Pacific Coast League. The 9,500 seat stadium’s most recent construction cost is set at $60.8 million. It will include amenities such as 23 suites, a “Home Plate Club” which will include a bar, 300 club seats, a retail store, “party decks,” a Kids Zone, some outfield seating, and 360 degree access around the park, according to the website.

The stadium was designed by the Populous architectural firm, headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri.

  1. I first picked up on this webcam camera right after they imploded City Hall through a KVIA 7 News Website! They were removing all the remaining structure debris and clearing up the area.The camera itself has been an ongoing devise documenting the whole construction site from it's beginning till it's finish.Currently the camera is Zoomed in to close so you can't see the whole construction site!Earlier last week it was at it's best view were you could see the whole construction site. There will be times when they add a red or yellow filter to the camera lens blurring the image view then they go back to what it looks like now. You can see the workers and all their tools of the trade including the machinery, cranes, cement trucks,and port o potty's. Very interesting! I can spend hours watching this webcam,been doing so all summer long!

  2. I e-mailed Mountain Star Sports to see if they could modify the webcam so the whole stadium construction site could be viewed. But instead they gave us TxDot with the busy freeway and partial stadium view.
