  • FACILITY NOTES: ROCKETS SAY NEW PAD CAN BE BUILT FOR $158M

              The Rockets believe a new arena can be built in Houston
         for $158M, which would place it in the "middle range" of
         such U.S. facilities.  In a letter to Harris County-Houston
         Sports Authority members, Rockets Senior Exec VP John Thomas
         said that Turner Construction made the estimate under
         direction to come up with the "most favorable middle-market
         deal" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 2/24)....In AZ, NFL Cardinals
         execs and a stadium-support group "are confident enough"
         that a proposed multipurpose stadium will be built that they
         "already" hired lead architect Peter Eisenman (DAILY STAR,
         2/22)....In Boston, Nick Cafardo reported that 400,000 out-
         of-state ticket buyers watched the Patriots, Revolution and
         rock concerts at Foxboro Stadium in '97, creating an
         economic impact of about $12M (BOSTON GLOBE, 2/22).
