The Chicago Cubs and the city have reached a "framework" agreement for a $500 million renovation project of 99-year-old Wrigley Field. The terms of the agreement include:

-- Construction of a 6,000-square foot "videoboard" in left field and a 1,000-square foot sign in right field.

-- Increasing the number of regular-season night games from 30 to 40 per year.

-- Construction of a 175-room hotel, plaza, an office building with retail space and a health club.

-- Allowing the sale of beer to continue until the end of the 7th inning or 10:30 p.m., whichever comes first, instead of cutting off sales during the 7th inning stretch.

-- Adding 1,000 "remote" parking spots that will be free and come with shuttle service.
