ALL IS SUNNY FOR PANTHERS ARENA LAND BUY
Published September 11, 1996
The Broward County Commission unanimously agreed Tuesday to buy 135 acres near the Sawgrass Mills mall in Sunrise to build an arena for the Panthers, according to Meg James in the MIAMI HERALD. Lennar Florida Land will sell the land for "almost" $12.6M. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-November for an October '98 opening. County Commissioner Scott Cowan said that the county now plans to begin selling "as much as" $185M in bonds today in New York to finance the project. The Panthers, under the agreement reached Tuesday, will follow an existing site plan that calls for 7,500 parking spaces and "as much as" 75,000 feet of free-standing retail space (MIAMI HERALD, 9/11).
