Vancouver's BC Place Stadium will get a new roof.
Vancouver's BC Place Stadium (venue for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games) will get a new roof by 2011. The roof will be the largest cable-supported, retractable fabric roof in the world, being able to be opened or closed in just 20 minutes. The $458 million project will be completed by the summer of 2011, in time to host the Grey Cup. BC Place Stadium, already home to the Canadian Football League's BC Lions, will also be home to Vancouver's recently announced new Major League Soccer franchise. The stunning design is being applauded by Vancouverites. Read more at: www.bcplacestadium.com
