White said that increasing construction costs have driven the stadium’s cost from about $80 million to about $130 million, prompting the developers to increase their request for state tax credits from $10 million to $30 million.”
I thought they already had 10 million approved by the state. Why do they need another 20+? I am sure it is because of the sudden increase in good for the development. Then again if they want more, they must have the final drawings/blueprints for the stadium completed. Maybe just, maybe they let us see it.
Or they wont. Then again maybe I should call me State Rep and tell him I support the Wizards and am against the increase because there is no public renditions. Of course you all know I wont. But anti Tax, Tif, and tax credits, advocates are doing that right now.
Philly Releases Stadium Design I see myself typing this more and more. Hopefully we will know what the Wizards stadium design is soon. …….Do you think that if the State of Missouri sees a drawing, or a mock up of the Hillcrest Road development, to include the real stadium, they might approve the tax credits in a more timely manner? I don’t understand how an expansion city is releasing stadium designs ahead of ours which has been in the league since inception.
