EXPOS EYE LAND NEAR PLANNED PARK FOR POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT
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).
