ORLANDO SPORTS COMPLEX LIKELY TO BE BUILT IN MAITLAND
Published December 21, 1995
Magic officials have said suburban Maitland, FL, is their top choice as a site for a new $30M sports complex, and although they won't say so publicly, Orlando city officials have all but given up hope the team will build the facility downtown, according to the ORLANDO SENTINEL. With sources saying the team is "95 percent" certain to build in Maitland, the city is trying to persuade to at least keep their offices downtown. Magic spokesperson Gail Fuller said she expects the team to announce in January their plans for a 350,000-square foot, three-story center, featuring athletic, medical and educational resources, as well as the Magic's business operations. Until then, Orlando Mayor Glenda Hood said she would continue to push for the facility to be downtown, even though many at city hall think the effort is "futile" (Dan Tracy, ORLANDO SENTINEL, 12/21).
