MET CENTER MEETS THE WRECKING BALL
Published December 13, 1994
Bloomington, MN's Metropolitan Sports Center, longtime home to the former-Minnesota North Stars, was scheduled for demolition this morning. The building was built in 1967 for the NHL's North Stars inaugural year in the Twin Cities, but was "doomed" after the North Stars 1993 move to Dallas and the construction of the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. The land around the building, adjacent to the Mall of America, will be used for parking in the short term, but there is speculation the site could someday be used for another "shopping complex or a massive hotel" (Jerry Zgoda, Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 12/12).
