TIMING IS EVERYTHING: NFL Panthers President Danny Morrison yesterday said that he is “confident a deal can be reached” on a proposal to renovate Bank of America Stadium. He said that “timing is an issue, since the team would have to order new escalators and other upgrades by this fall in order to undertake construction after the 2013 season” (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 2/26).
ADDING TO THE PLAN: In Hartford, Kenneth Gosselin noted plans for “more shops, restaurants and entertainment venues at Rentschler Field in East Hartford may finally be getting a boost.” United Technologies Corp. spokesperson Ian Race, whose company owns the property near the venue, said UTC “has signed a letter of intent with OTB Destination, which is putting together plans for a destination retail and entertainment complex” (COURANT.com, 2/22).
