The Post gives big coverage to the new stadium, with a spread on A1 accompanying the story "Lots of Glass, Capital Views
." There are also companion pieces by Post architecture critic Benjamin Forgey
(not a big fan of the design) and Sports columnist Thomas Boswell
(who thinks it could be a great ballpark if the owners-to-be pony up a bit more dough than is currently budgeted for the project). There's also a huge Sports-front package of illustrations, plus the story "Form Follows Bottom Line
", about the financial aspects of the stadium design. Also, David Nakamura, who covers the stadium beat for the Post, will be doing a Live Online Chat Wednesday at 1 pm
. And of course, it must be remembered that initial renderings don't always end up being what gets built.... Also note that I've been tweaking my stadium page
throughout the day, with additional renderings and photos.
Mayor Williams has unveiled the design of the new baseball stadium--I've added the renderings to my stadium page. Also, here is the Post piece describing the new stadium, as well as the renderings with descriptions.
