GET OUT THE MEGAPHONES… A FOOTBALL STADIUM
IS COMING TO BOCA
The Florida Board of Governors unanimously approved a resolution authorizing FAU to finance part of the construction of a 30,000-seat stadium and associated improvements. In July the FAU Board of Trustees had unanimously approved the project and its financing plan.
FAU’s Innovation Village is located in the north central campus area where the stadium will be built. This is a gathering place for alumni, students, faculty, staff and community members to live, learn, dine, shop, enjoy and build tradition. A student housing facility is under construction and scheduled to open in the fall of 2011. A retail area is being planned.
The $70MM project will be home to the two-time bowl winning OWL football team. 20 luxury suites will be featured with 1,000 club seats and, of course, the latest state-of-the-art amenities. Completion is scheduled for fall 2001, with construction expected to start in October 2010.
All together now, let’s give a cheer for the new excitement that is coming to town!
