HAWKS EYES OLYMPIC LAND FOR NEW ARENA
Published June 14, 1996
Turner Broadcasting System officials are looking at alternative sites, including land around Centennial Olympic Park, for a new Hawks arena should negotiations with Norfolk Southern Railroad break down, according to Maria Saporta of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Turner's focus has been on acquiring a nearby gulch property to build a new arena so that the team can continue to play in the Omni during construction. But Turner and the city are "being forced to look at other options because they are as much as" $15M apart in their negotiations with the Norfolk Southern. The Centennial Park site is not as close to MARTA stations as the gulch site and would not have enough space for an arena and 2,000 parking spaces (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/14).
