HOK ASKED TO DRAFT OVERHAUL IN CHICAGO
Published September 21, 1995
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).
