No one likes to renovate a stadium, unless you are an American university.
In which case you are comfortable renovating one of the oldest stadiums in the United States. Â I find it funny that in Canada, the consultants reports always say, “tear it down” while American (nd many British) consultants almost always say, “renovate” and expand. Â There are different opinions about which is the right approach but personally I love the history behind American university stadiums vs. the sterile feel of pro stadiums. Â I also love the idea of building to expand later, which is something that a lot of pro teams can learn from. Â It’s a lot cheaper than tearing down and building again. Â Of course with a university as a tenant, they aren’t likely to pick up and move to the Alamodome or Los Angeles but the end result are almost sacred sports places full of history and memories.
