ICAHN Stadium

This Randall’s Island athletic facility gave the historic, yet dilapidated, Downing Stadium a new name, a new look, and the first IAAF Class 1 running track in the United States. Geiger Engineers chose steel to keep the project light, and built the 5,000-seat grandstand in the first phase of construction.
