Miami Open Tennis Tournament
Moss was honored to be a part of the Miami Open’s new facility at Hard Rock Stadium. The project included 31,000 sq. ft. of improvements to Hard Rock Stadium, including the demolition and renovation of the stadium’s locker rooms, Dolphins suites, family lounge, office suites, off field support and the stadium infield.
Upgrades outside of the stadium included a 5,000 seat Grandstand that features a player’s lounge, gym, restrooms, and mechanical rooms. In addition, Moss constructed 29 courts (18 practice courts, 10 tournament courts, and the Grandstand court), as well as landscaping and other improvements to the grounds. A 3,600 sq. ft. video display board was installed on the south exterior of Hard Rock Stadium, the largest video board in tennis.
The center piece of the project, a stadium within a stadium, went up just prior to the tournament’s start, when Hard Rock Stadium’s football field was converted into a tennis center court. The 13,800-seat stadium stand included a lower and upper bowl seating area, use of the existing club level seating area (Dolphin’s VIP seating area used for football), and a VIP suite package. The “wraparound” stadium seating concourse was constructed around the stadium court and successfully brought the audience close to the on-court action.
