Minnesota Vikings’ Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

HKS Inc. – the architectural firm that designed stadiums for the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts beat out four competitors Friday to draw up plans for the $975 million Minnesota Vikings’ stadium that will be built in downtown Minneapolis, reports the Winnipeg Free Press today.

The selection of Dallas-based HKS Inc. for a $34 million design contract drew predictions of greatness during a meeting of the public authority overseeing the stadium project.

Vikings Vice-President Lester Bagley called Cowboys Stadium and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis “two iconic facilities and among the greatest in the world.”

HKS submitted the second-lowest of five bids, at nearly $42 million, but the final price was negotiated down. The highest bid, $54 million, came from Kansas City-based Populous, the designer of the Twins’ Target Field, TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota and the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The lowest bid of $32 million came from Los Angeles-based AECOM, which designed CenturyLink Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks.

The stadium building is due to open in 2016. The new facility will replace the Metrodome, the team’s current home on the eastern edge of downtown.
