LIONS NARROW LIST DOWN TO THREE FIRMS -- TWO MAY JOIN FORCES
Published September 18, 1997
Detroit-based architecture firms Barton Malow Co. and Walbridge Aldinger Co., MI's "two largest construction firms," are "among finalists" to construct the Lions' new $225M stadium in downtown Detroit, according to Patricia Montemurri of the DETROIT FREE PRESS. Officials "close to the negotiations" said that the two firms may "team up" to build the stadium. The two firms "have worked with each other on some projects, but their collaboration rarely has taken the form of a joint partnership." Turner Construction Co., which will oversee the Tigers' new ballpark, is also a finalist for the project (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 9/19).
