HOUSTON DOME DEAL DEAD FOR NOW?
Published September 29, 1994
Houston Oilers owner Bud Adams' proposal for a new downtown dome is a "dead duck," according to Houston Mayor Bob Lanier. Lanier: "They (Oilers management) just backed off because they can't get (Rockets owner Les) Alexander in the deal." Alexander left the project to pursue his own basketball arena. There has been city-wide debate over a new stadium since Adams mentioned it last November and requested that public funds finance $195M of the proposed $245M project. Bob Eury, who heads two groups that promote downtown, said a new stadium "is a long way from dead," and that they are studying the need for more sports facilities in the city (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 9/28).
