Abstract:

Rather than tear down a century-old warehouse that occupied the site of a planned baseball stadium, engineers renovated and reused the structure as part of the ballpark. Fans can view the game from the roof of the warehouse or visit a retail store within the old structure, which was given a structural upgrade to keep it safe in the even of an earthquake.
