SBD/9/Facilities Venues


     This afternoon, the Tampa Sports Authority will get its
first look at the details on options for improving Tampa Stadium.
The architectural firm of Hellmuth, Obala & Kassabaum (HOK) will
include in its presentation the first-ever look at the option of
reconstruction, according to Danielson & Banks of the ST.
PETERSBURG TIMES.  The reconstruction would be similar to how the
Jaguars prepared the Gator Bowl for their inaugural season in the
NFL, a job also done by HOK.  Costs would be higher than
renovating, but cheaper than building a new stadium.  Danielson &
Banks report that new Bucs Owner Malcolm Glazer has made his
desires clear on what it will take to keep the Bucs in Tampa:
"more luxury suites, the addition of club seats and roomier,
nicer seats throughout the rest of the stands."  The decision on
which option to pursue will depend not only on cost, but also on
how long work would take.  Glazer's sons Bryan and Joel will
attend the briefing, but both declined to comment on the stadium
options (Danielson & Banks, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 5/9).
