Designed by Warsaw-based SPAK practice it allowed Gdynia to meet increasing standards, even though the structure also earned some criticism for roof construction that doesn't cover all spectators and has steel supports obstructing view from some seats. This was however chosen by Gdynia municipality due to budget constraints over much more effective cantilever roof. Demolition of the previous stadium started on December 1, 2009, with challenging foundation works done during harsh winter. By May 2010 first stand reached its maximum height with 20 rows of terracing.[1] Works carried out by Budimex-Dromex were due to end in late 2010, but after delays were finished in early weeks of 2011.[2]
