Minnesota Vikings Stadium: BAH GAWD, King, That's Hennepin County's Music!


Big thanks to "Vikeologist" on Twitter for passing along this link to a report from KSTP 5 in Minneapolis.

Sources tell 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that the developers have reconfigured the Farmer's Market site and are now calling it the "Stadium District" site. It would move the stadium property line within 100 yards of Target Field.

The idea is to create a sports complex with restaurants, hotels and entertainment connecting the new Vikings stadium to Target Field and Target Center.

...

Sources tell us Hennepin County is waiting for the legislative session to end without a Vikings stadium deal. If that happens, expect Hennepin County and developers of the Stadium District site to unveil their plans publicly.

Well, then. . .not quite sure what to think about this, as it seems awfully sudden. I know that the Farmer's Market site was one of the original sites proposed back in February, but I thought there were going to be a bunch of issues with businesses having to relocate and all that sort of stuff.

If they can make it happen, here's hoping they can make it happen. It would take a special session, obviously, since the article states that Hennepin County is waiting for the current legislative session to be finished and the current legislation to officially be buried before they come forth with their proposal.

I'm trying not to get too excited while, at the same time, trying to be happy that there might still be some good news after all. I just want the roller coaster ride to end.
