Study Favors Spot Near Target Field For Vikings

Minnesota NewsMINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A study commissioned by the real estate investor who envisioned Target Field on a scrubby downtown Minneapolis parking lot concludes the nearby Farmers Market would be the best place for a new Vikings stadium.

Real estate investor Bruce Lambrecht on Monday presented an analysis finding the Farmers Market site beats the Metrodome site in everything but
land acquisition costs.

He says building the new stadium near the Twins’ home would create a sports and entertainment district that would take advantage of the area’s ample parking, transit, restaurants and bars.

Lambrecht owns land near the proposed site but not on it.

On the other hand, city planners say the Metrodome site is the most cost-effective. The Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission is expected to soon release its own analysis.
