Looking at these photos, the thought of a stadium on Pier 40 for New York City FC would be amazing. But man, this has to be too good to be true. Right?
SportsGrid spotted the following leaked renderings originally posted over at Reddit. As you see below, they are quite impressive even for a potential stadium that likely will never see the light of day.
For one, the pier itself would need a ton of renovation to even be able to handle the size of a 25,000 seat stadium on it. Some have said that the renovation costs would be around the $200 million range. Now the new owners of New York City FC could easily afford it considering how flush with cash they are but would they even want to do that?
Pier 40 was one of the stadium locations that was discussed when the league started their search for a home for NY2.
Still, it would be a pretty sweet location huh?
