Lots of issues there, though. A pretty penny is going to have to be thrown at the people who own the warehouses and such to get them to sell, move, etc...

Hell, well over market value and season tickets for life before it is even a discussion. The owners can hold out to a degree but do they really want to be the ones that prevent the Rays from staying ? Do they really want to be the ones who force eminent domain upon them ?

The fact that there are businesses here complicates things. If it was section 8 housing then it wouldn't be such a big deal. That is how the land was procured for the new Magic arena.

Also - where the hell are people supposed to park ?

I was under the impression that deals had ALREADY been made to acquire the 14 acres. At least that is what my impression of what I read is.

Would a new baseball stadium affect the construction of an ocs for USF?

This does not effect the fun parts of Ybor, right? Except possibly the Centro garage getting full on game days.

Nope...it should help bring a few decent sports bars though.

It will be interesting what happens to the St Pete Bowl if this becomes reality. Actually a 3rd tier bowl in either Ybor or St. Pete would work. I can't image the Trop survives though.

Why would you say that. The stadium wasn't even built for the Rays. It was built to entice the Chicago White Sox to move south when they were negotiating for a new park in Chicago.
