HAWKS HOPE TO STAY DOWNTOWN IN NEW ARENA
Published March 29, 1995
A meeting between the Hawks and Atlanta city officials yesterday to discuss the possibility of a new downtown arena was "productive," according to both sides. The Hawks have said they want to leave the Omni and "relocate to a modern arena" with more luxury boxes in the suburbs. The city, however, would like to keep the team downtown. Turner Broadcasting VP William Shaw said TBS Chair/Hawks Owner Ted Turner "is a big supporter of the city and, all things equal, he'd like to stay in the city." A "few possible" Atlanta sites are being explored, but "no specific proposal" was made (Saporta & Unger, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/29).
