TAMPA OFFICIALS "SURPRISED" AFTER MEETING WITH HOK
Published May 10, 1995
Yesterday's meeting between the Tampa Sports Authority and architects from K.C.-based HOK made TSA officials believe that it will take "some big bucks" to keep the Bucs from leaving town, according to today's TAMPA TRIBUNE. Estimates for a new stadium run as high as $210M, while the cost of renovation was put at $155M. Citing "sticker shock," the TSA asked HOK to return next week with a list of "cost-cutting ideas." TSA Building Committee Chair Steve Anderson, expressed "surprise" to HOK's estimates: "They're much higher than I anticipated. I don't think the community could afford or is prepared to pay $210M" (Jim Kenyon, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 5/10). Although HOK officials "provided few details" about why the estimates for renovation were so much higher than expected, they did say that working with the "constraints of the stadium's existing structure complicated their job" (Danielson & Banks, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 5/10).
