County Commissioners Vote For $105M Renovations To Astrodome

February 13, 2018

The Astrodome will continue to stand after Harris County Commissioners voted on a $105 million plan to renovate the former home of the Houston Astros and Houston Oilers. The plan would include raising the Astrodome's floor to create an underground parking garage as well as creating nine acres of open space and possibly adding office space in the "8th Wonder of the World." In 2013 Harris County voters rejected a plan to save the building that opened in 1965 and closed in 2008. The renovations would add 1,400 parking spaces inside the building.
