Lake View‘s Wrigley Field at 1012 W Addison Street has seen the completion of a three-story, 22,000-square-foot sportsbook betting venue. This development follows the recent repeal of the sports betting ban and reflects a trend of major stadiums initiating their own betting operations.
Many of the I-beam exterior pieces have now been installed along 1012 W Addison Street, a new three-story sportsbook betting addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View. The Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development are spearheading an extension to the iconic stadium oriented around sports betting, whose ban in the city was recently lifted. Owing to this new ordinance, the five major sports stadiums in the city have now facilitated their own betting operations.
Structural steel has reached its full height for a three-story addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View, having been co-planned by the Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development. Connected to the original stadium, this new 22,000-square-foot enclosure at 1012 W Addison Street will house a Draftkings sportsbook betting venue along with multiple dining options, replacing the former Captain Morgan Club (later the Fantasy Draftkings Sports Zone) at the southeast corner of the stadium block. The project comes at the heels of City Council’s recent reversal of its sports betting ban, thereby greenlighting such operations at Chicago’s five professional stadiums.
Initial foundation work is visible at the triangular parcel along the southeast corner of Wrigley Field, which will give way to a three-story DraftKings sportsbook and various dining options. Co-developed by the Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development, this 22,350-square-foot addition at 1012 W Addison Street will replace the former Captain Morgan Club, which later became the Fantasy DraftKings Sports Zone.
