EXPOS EYE LAND NEAR PLANNED PARK FOR POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT
Published May 27, 1998
The Expos "filed papers last week" with the city of Montreal to develop a 1.4-million-square-foot property that is adjacent to their proposed site for a new ballpark, according to Basem Boshra of the Montreal GAZETTE. The team's plan calls for construction of "three high-rise buildings" that would include a hotel, stores and offices as well as residential apartments. The buildings would be located "just beyond the park's right-field fence." Expos' VP/Development Laurier Carpentier said that any development "could be as much as 10 years away" (GAZETTE, 5/27).
