COULD BE AN ASTRO LOGICAL DEAL: NEW STADIUM NAME TO ENRON?
Published January 13, 1999
Energy company Enron "is the front-runner" to acquire naming rights to the Astros' new ballpark in a deal that could have "ramifications far beyond" naming rights, according to John Williams of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. The new name of The Ballpark at Union Station could be "as simple" as Enron Park. Enron is also "proposing" that it manage many of the services in the new stadium, including elevators, escalators, energy, air conditioning and landscaping. The company is also "looking into helping to acquire" currently vacant land around the stadium to "build and manage a large residential, retail and commercial development." Enron execs declined comments and said that "facility management and especially downtown development" talks are "premature" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/13).
