For years, there has been speculation of a "Triangle Building" located at the corner of Waveland and Addison, which was expected to house a parking garage, green roof, retail space, a restaurant, team offices, and below-ground batting cages.
Under the new plan announced Saturday, the Triangle Building would be scrapped from the plans, leaving the space at Waveland and Addison open for outdoor events such as movie screenings and the popular Rink at Wrigley.
From an architectural standpoint, I am a fan of eliminating the Triangle Building. Since it was expected to be seven stories, it would take away too much attention from the actual ballpark itself and. from many angles, would entirely block the stadium.
The plan of having outdoor space seems much more fan-friendly than a hulking commercial building.
