NFL American football franchise the Miami Dolphins has announced details of a series of improvements that have been made to its Hard Rock Stadium, as part of a major renovation project at the venue.

The initiative, bankrolled by owner Stephen Ross, is expected to cost in excess of $500m (€425.6m/ £384.1m) and features a number of significant upgrades.

According to CBS Miami, phase three of the project includes a new partnership with Aston Martin Residences, enhanced food and drink offerings, new luxury and party spaces, as well as redesigned landscaping and parking.

The BankUnited Club at the stadium has been renovated and now offers 147 suites, varying in size from 10 to 50 seats, and each featuring air conditioning and multi-feed sound systems, refrigerators, ice-makers and private telephone services.

New Theatre Boxes, which can seat between four and six people, are also now in place on the BankUnited Club Level and will offer guests a shared suite environment with inclusive food and drinks. Four new corner clubs will also debut in the coming season, each of which will offer suite members access to the corner’s interior space and bar.

Aside from luxury improvements to the stadium, ‘Party Terraces’ have now been created on the 300 level, offering fans a standing-room-only area with a double-sided bar and a view of the field.

Outside of the venue, parking areas have been redesigned to help improve the flow of traffic before and after home games, while the surrounding area has been given a fresh look with the addition of 37,00 new trees and shrubs.

In addition, food options have also been improved at the stadium, with celebrity chef David Chang to feature this season at Fuku, while other restaurants include Coyo Taco, Los Ranchos, Jackson Soul Food, O-B House, Shorty’s BBQ, Grown, Shula Burger and Sushi Maki.

And for beer fans, Hard Rock Stadium will introduce three new premium craft offerings at the Tap Rooms on the north and south sides of the 100 level.
