Is that a new arena next to the stadium?  yes…. slated for 2012-2013

Nice. Where did you hear that? And do you know how many seats they're considering, 7k? 10k? 15k? I know the BOT likes to play conservative but Brogan and Angelos are always "building for the future."

Those are the new dorms to the west of the stadium, right? What is the complex east of the stadium? More dorms?  yes… not sure which is which, but one is undergrad… one is grad… maybe mixed in, not that many grad students go to FAU… don't know 100% what is what

The dorms to the east are the Fall '09 upperclassmen apartments. The most recent document out of Facilities/Architect's Office called for those upperclassmen apartments to be built on a parking lot just west of the Henderson school (and northeast of the medical school building). That's the same location those apartments are. The smaller building between those apartments and the stadium is a satellite plant.

Are those two parking decks to the left (west) of the fountain? Aren't they too close?  drawing is not to scale, lol


I believe it's such that they're two garages with connectors to form one unit. I'm not sure where the people who live in the eastmost apartments are going to park but that's another story.

Where are the shops and restaurants?  good question… i was wondering the same

From the other renderings, it looks like they will be integrated into the side of the arena and parking garages. It looks like FAU has scaled back from… IIRC… 180k square feet to 60k square feet of recreation space.

Notice it's the parking garage, there are tables, it says "Eat Fresh", "Nature's (something)", "Cafe FAU", etc

I will be great if they get this whole project to look like the renderings. I like that plaza concept surrounding the stadium and the arena. Should be the focal point of the campus. Sure beats the field house which was the only athletic structure while I was there.

This might be interesting. Open the link, click on the pictures above and read below.

It says for residences -  A total of at least 1,500 new beds to open in phases beginning Fall 2009 through 2012.


also includes info about stadium and retail.

If you click on the stadium picture and look below, you will see in small print : "Naming Opportunities for the Stadium Component" click on that and it will list all the naming opportunities and the price.

If this whole thing turns out like they are presenting it, I may retire early, go back to school at FAU and live on campus.

It's kind of hard to tell, but is the stadium laid out North to South?  It looks like it.

It looks like it's not north-south, but parallel to the coastline.

Re: NEW - Stadium Pictures

So if they put the home side on the East, is the scorching Florida sun going to be in loyal Owl Fans' eyes?  Or will it be askance and not bad?  Hopefully, the home side will be on the West, like Lockhart student section.  South endzone would be nice.  Open endzone in North makes good sense.

I thought about this because at Lockhart the East endzone is in full glare at those 4pm games.  It's good when idiots like USF fans have to stare into the sun, but the home side ought to be out o' the sun.
