MIAMI CONSIDERS DEMOLITION OF ORANGE BOWL
Published October 17, 1994
The decision to move the Orange Bowl football game to Joe Robbie Stadium after 1996 has many debating the future of the Orange Bowl stadium. One possibility that is gaining support is demolition. But others have proposed renovating the stadium to keep the University of Miami as a tenant and to attract another bowl game. Estimates of a major new overhaul -- including more than 10,000 new seats, 40 luxury suites, a new press box and security fencing -- run as high as $30M. Other possibilities under consideration: turn the Orange Bowl into an open casino in th event FL voters approve statewide gambling; or host a seasonal basketball tournament, a national auto show, a circus and other big-draw events (Joanne Cavanaugh, MIAMI HERALD, 10/14).
