New York Jets unveiled their long inspired ideas to create
a brand new Sports and Convention center. Anticipated to be
one of New York’s most exciting new buildings, it will
anchor for the new Hudson Yards community. The new stadium’s
height has been steadily reduced by more than ten stories.
The stadium was initially going to have over fifteen stories
but in order to maintain proper safety and stable agility
the complex will stand at ten stories high. With 180,000 square
feet of complex and a truly unique design, the stadium will
portray from the inside out the great essence of New York.
The new public plaza of the convention center will be built
along the three blocks that are bound by 30th and 33rd Street
and 11th and 12th avenue and it will ensure a great new experience
to the public. The grand plaza is to be built over rail yards
and will be located just a few miles south of the Jacob K.
Javits Convention Center.
There are great benefits coming from the building of this
large complex. Thousands of temporary and permanent jobs will
be available for the hard working individuals of New York
City. They will generate perhaps millions of dollars in annual
revenue. Most of the proceeds will be used to help support
and supply Firefighters, Police and New York State teachers.
The profits will also fund any new buildings, complexes and
or arenas in the New York area to come in due time. As a result
of the new stadium the citizens of New York will have a chance
to experience their favorite sports in a clean, healthy safe
environment. Perhaps safety will not be so much of an issue
anymore when dealing with large amounts of people. Apart from
housing the New York Jets the convention center will serve
as a concert hall, and convention plaza. Also, the stadium
will be used for the upcoming 2012 Olympics if New York City
is chosen as the prime location for the honorable event. With
a positive atmosphere and a strong foundation this new convention
center will greatly influence the city, economically and socially.
Quite a few new developments have been made regarding the
stadium. According to ESPN Wire, the stadium has yet again
been reduced in height by one hundred and twenty feet. The
unique design of steel façade will be replaced instead
with semi- opaque glass. With many drastic changes regarding
this $1.4 billion stadium there comes difficulty. Ever since
it was proposed last year it has been a controversial issue.
Raising opposition within the residents of the area, local
politicians, few civic committees and of course with Madison
Square Garden, all of whom work hard and thoroughly in order
to preserve the sanctity and natural positive energy of their
neighborhood. With individuals slowly adapting to the possibility
of the new stadium, the plans are still underway and as far
as the stadium is concerned, there should be a new West Side
stadium in no time. Currently the New York Jets share a stadium
with the New York Giants in New Jersey, but their lease expires
in 2008. Hopefully the stadium will be built long before or
soon after that depressing deadline.
