The turf is synthetic, the lights are LED, and 800 cars can park downstairs and while their drivers take to the rooftop to watch the game. It is genius. Parking is reportedly tough to find in the area, and the team has had to play off campus since its inception. The structure cost $30 million to build, but most was donated by alumni.

There are restaurants, housing, shopping and many other properties built above garages, but this is the first athletic venue I’ve heard of that is perched on parking. They might lose a few balls to the elevation, but nobody will care. Whether the game is good or not, the view is spectacular.
