See just how tall the Vikings stadium will be in Minneapolis

At its peak, the new Vikings stadium will be 320 feet above the playing surface. That’s about 30 stories high, or about half the height of the IDS Center. The MSFA said this week the crane in the picture below will be about the height of the low end of the sloped roof.

The MSFA says that corresponds roughly to the roofline on the left side of this rendering — the eastern side of the roof.

    Egad, what a monstrosity that is going to be. At least when they built the Metrodome they had the good sense to put half of it below ground to minimize its overall mass. It looks like less than 1/5 of the new stadium will be below grade.
