CRITICS SEEK DELAY TO "UNIMAGINATIVE" RAVENS STADIUM
Published June 12, 1996
Several Baltimore city planners are seeking design changes to the Ravens proposed stadium "and have even suggested delaying construction for a year to ensure a park equal in presence to Oriole Park," according to the Baltimore SUN. Ravens and MD Stadium Authority officials "emphatically" rejected the idea, but planners said the design is "so unimaginative and the building so important to the city" that a delay may be warranted. According to MSA, a one-year delay will cost $16.5M in ticket sales, $12M in inflation, and $5M in extra pay for architects and contractors while the Ravens play an extra year in Memorial Stadium. Ravens VP David Modell: "There's no way. Our deal called for us to go into the new stadium in 1998 and we have basically constructed our entire business schedule around that" (Marcia Myers, Baltimore SUN, 6/12).
