RAPTORS "REDOING THEIR LAIR" TO INCLUDE MAPLE LEAFS?
Published September 13, 1994
Raptors officials are altering designs for the new stadium to include 1,000 more seats for basketball and make room for the possible acquisition of the Maple Leafs. Raptors stadium project director Jay Cross called it "a streamlined design." Maple Leaf Gardens is considered too small for NBA basketball and Raptors VP Tom Mayenknecht noted "the asset is the hockey team, not necessarily the building." Also, an industry source has indicated the Raptors have a deadline at the end of this month to resolve negotiations with the proposed stadium site's new owners. Mayenknecht's response: "We're interested in proceeding with the task at hand. We're preparing for construction next summer" (Craig Daniels, TORONTO SUN, 9/13).
