As UNC Charlotte leaders continue to hash out plans over a proposed new football stadium on the campus, new renderings reveal another element to the debate: where exactly to put the facility?
The stadium is slated to be built near the university's Charlotte Research Institute off the North Tryon Street entrance and near the baseball stadium. But the renderings from architects Jenkins-Peer Architects and the DLR Group show leaders still must decide how to orient the stadium.
The options are included in a presentation -- click here to view it-- given to university trustees on the football stadium. The renderings are on pages 5-7 of the presentation.
Chancellor Phil Dubois notes there advantages to each option. For example, putting the stadium between and behind Duke Centennial and Grigg halls -- or option B -- would make the football field more visible from North Tryon street. Meanwhile, many college football stadiums generally follow a north-south orientation, or option C.
Which option do you prefer?
Meanwhile, as an article in today's Observer notes, the architects recently suggested that the campus build a temporary football stadium in the same location it would put the permanent facility. - April Bethea
