The Minnesota Vikings can move into U.S. Bank Stadium 1˝ months early, as the City of Minneapolis issued a certificate of occupancy for the building on Friday. The Minnesota State Building Code requires that new buildings must obtain a certificate of occupancy before the building can be occupied. The contracted date for U.S. Bank Stadium’s certificate of occupancy was July 15 according to the project’s construction services agreement.

The majority of the construction has been complete on the building and is in its “final weeks,” according to a press release, with one of the major items left on the to-do list being installing the couches in the Club Purple section of the lower bowl that is unique to the new stadium.

Mark Wilf: “Today’s early milestone is a testament of true collaboration by thousands of construction workers, hundreds of Minnesota-based businesses, the MSFA, Mortenson, HKS and the Vikings. With the incredible work shown by so many individuals, we are growing closer to opening the future home for Vikings football and showcasing the unprecedented game day experience U.S. Bank Stadium will provide.”

If you're talking about the lot on the bottom of the picture, I've wondered about that too. At first I thought it was team parking, since the locker rooms are in that area. However, as I kept thinking about it, I'm not sure if it would be enough spaces. My next thought was media and/or stadium personnel, since the press box is in that corner, as well.

The restroom attendants will park there.

It could just be the camera but amazing how small the new stadium look compared to the dome. Yet the Bank is actually 2x bigger. The seats are really going to be close to the field

Elegant stadium. Enjoy it. Next year the Vikings host the SB.

The LA Rams new stadium will open in 2019. Cool

More than likely media.
I'd be willing to guarantee there's a secure underground area for players and personnel.

I read up on our old stadium, the Met.

It's too bad it was such a small venue and wasn't maintained like it should have been. It'd be very cool to say we've been using a stadium for over 50 years and it's still in good condition.

but, I'm excited for the Vikings to make their move into US Bank Stadium. I'll be there for the game against Houston!
