PLAN FOR A NEW TIGER STADIUM SEEMS TO GAIN MOMENTUM
Published June 9, 1995
"Plans for a new Tiger Stadium have progressed to the point that the builders have been chosen," according to Barkholz & Goodin of CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS. Pending "successful financing," the Southfield division of Perini Building and Detroit-based Walbridge Aldinger have reportedly been selected. According to Tigers Owner Mike Ilitch, the team, in cooperation with the city of Detroit, "would roll out a detailed stadium plan within four weeks." Walbridge Aldinger Chair & CEO John Rakolta denied last week that a formal decision has been made on a team. Rakolta said he has discussed a joint venture with Perini if the project proceeds, "but it hasn't been decided who will own the stadium, so no entity exists to sign a contract." Early estimates: $175M for construction and $65M-200M for land acquisition and infrastructure. HOK has reportedly been working with Detroit architects Smith, Hinchman & Grylls Assoc. on a design (CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS, 6/11 issue).
