RE: Visionary designs for stadium renewals

1) What is different about Busch Stadium?
a) The design of various club areas, especially the Bank of America Club
b) The brick work is very unique.
c) The View of the arch.
d) inclusion of old scoreboard
e) player clubhouse design
2) I don't know how to argue this one, think they did very good within a budget. Everyone would like to be the Yankess and spend a billion bucks.
3) The amenities are there. When Busch III was created it ranked top 10 in bathrooms per fan, concession stand per fan. Think it still does??? with 3.3M a year fan wise, its a matter of big crowds creating line, more then lack of amenities.
4) Much of 200/300 level concourses you can see the field from the concourse. While 100 level isn't so much that way, except in the outfield. 100 level is a victim of creating good seats at the expense of views. Fans wanted the seats, owners wanted the revenue.
