HEY CORPORATE NEW YORK, NEW SUITES FOR GIANTS STADIUM
Published October 13, 1995
Giants Stadium "will be outfitted" with $37.2M worth of new luxury seating under a partnership formed by the NJ Sports & Exposition Authority and the Jets and Giants, according to this morning's Bergen RECORD. The two teams and the Authority "each will foot one-third of the construction costs and will split the take from the new seating." Plans call for building 32 luxury suites, 26 of them suspended on towers above the existing upper tier, and six "supersuites" on the mezzanine level where the press box currently is. Also on the mezzanine will be 794 new club seats. Construction on the project, the first major expansion to Giants Stadium since it was built, is scheduled to begin next month with the work to be completed in time for the '97 NFL season. Officials said details on the costs of the new suites would be released next week (Thomas Fitzgerald, Bergen RECORD, 10/13).
