HOK ASKED TO DRAFT OVERHAUL IN CHICAGO

     Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has asked K.C.-based sports
architectural firm, HOK, to draft an overhaul plan for Soldier
Field similar to what was done for the Gator Bowl,  according to
in today's CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.  Park District Supt. Forrest
Claypool said yesterday that a rehab, along with "more favorable
terms for the Bears, could take place without raising property
taxes or jeopardizing the park budget."  HOK is expected to draft
a renovation that does not include rotating the playing field 90
degrees, but closer to the plan that was scrapped in '93.  That
project included 4,000 premium-priced club seats, enlarged
skyboxes, new washrooms, concessions and a high-tech scoreboard
(Spielman & Drell, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 9/21).
