The Kansas City, Kansas company behind the design of the new Titans stadium

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Images of what the proposed new Tennessee Titans stadium could look like have been released for the first time.

Last week, the city of Nashville and the team announced that it had reached an agreement to build a new stadium instead of renovating the current one.

Titans President and CEO Burke Nihill shared some design concepts last weekBut the team released renderings of the domed stadium Tuesday morning.

“We envision the potential of a new stadium that makes our community proud and enhances the reputation of a great city and country,” Nihill said in a press release. “We are focused on designing a stadium capable of hosting a prestigious international event on Sundays and an effective stream of community programs during the same week. This is a building that will serve Nashville and Tennessee for generations.

The 1.7 million square foot stadium will cost about $2.1 billion, at no additional cost to taxpayersaccording to Mayor John Cooper.

Some key features of the design include a capacity of about 60,000, non-retractable dome, high-tech ETFE transparent roof, exterior space with a panoramic view of the city, better sight lines for spectators and a dedicated space of 12,000 sq. for the community that can be used for educational purposes and events.

The team works together MANICA (based in Kansas City, Kansas) and Hastings (based in Nashville) on a proposed stadium design concept with an emphasis on development integration to complement the city’s broader East Bank plan.

The team also hopes to achieve the US Green Building Council’s LEED Gold certification with the build.

They have not yet appointed an architect, but will undergo the full design process at a later date when the building has been approved.
