We were looking for something that would… not make sense anywhere else.”
— Joe Spear, HOK Sport, the company that designed the stadium.
This stadium is being built to reflect the condition of this market, which is a huge corporate presence, a huge lobbying presence and high residential incomes.”
— Mark Rivers of Brix and Company
