SWEET HOME CHICAGO: DALEY OFFERS PLAN FOR SOLDIER FIELD
Published October 12, 1995
Chicago Mayor Richard Daley issued a "stern warning" to Bears President Michael McCaskey saying he will offer plans next week to refurbish Soldier Field, but those plans will not be as "lavish" as McCaskey has demanded, according to today's CHICAGO TRIBUNE. Kass & Kirby note Daley's renovation plans are modeled after a '92 renovation effort that became "bogged down" when the Mayor and McCaskey could not agree on financing for the then-$70M project (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/12). In the SUN-TIMES, Fran Spielman writes the new plan is more "elaborate" and will include adding 4,000 premium club seats, a glass-enclosed VIP lounge and a new lease that "pumps millions of dollars" more each year to the Bears. Daley is skeptical about McCaskey's reaction at next week's presentation: "I don't think anything can satisfy his demands" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 10/12).
