One More New Arena Thread...
The Maryland Stadium Authority released its study on a proposed expansion to the Baltimore Convention Center today. The plans include a rebuilt and expanded hotel on the location of the Sheraton, and a new 18,500-seat arena.
The project would cost $900 million ($400m for the convention center, $325m for the arena and $175m for the hotel). The money for the arena and hotel would come from private sources based around the owner of the Sheraton, Willard Hackerman. The rest would come from the city.
So...is this going to be our time to get a real, honest-to-goodness arena in this burg? Or is it yet another tease forcing the continued existence of the Horror Of Howard Street?
