SEATTLE BALLPARK GROUP GETS STADIUM PLANS IN GEAR
The Mariners hope to have a new stadium built in time for
the '99 season, according to the SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER.
Officials of the Public Facilities District overseeing
construction of the new ballpark plan to choose a site, an
architect and a construction firm simultaneously --and as soon as
possible. The District plans to consult with experts involved
with stadiums in Baltimore, Cleveland, and Denver. K.C.-based
HOK, lead architect at Camden Yards and Coors Field, announced
yesterday it has formed a partnership with two Seattle firms to
prepare a bidding. A final decision is expected by August '96
(Angelo Bruscas, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 12/19).
