Salisbury University often boasts that its Sea Gulls soar on the athletic field. Now, its stadium is soaring, too — to a height of nearly 80 feet.

Workers from contractor Whiting Turner of Baltimore recently “topped out” SU’s new $19 million Sea Gull Stadium, adding the final beam to the central press box portion of the structure.

Once enclosed, the four-story facility will house locker rooms, an athletic training clinic and classroom, VIP seating and suites, broadcast and recording booths, and support services such as ticket, souvenir and concession sales areas. Inside, the stadium will include seating for nearly 5,000 fans.

Architects are GWWO Inc. of Baltimore, working in consultation with HOK of Kansas City.

The new Sea Gull Stadium is expected to open in spring 2016.
