[size=12Could a 10,000-seat outdoor stadium be built downtown? pt][/size]

I thought this is what Oneok stadium was supposed to do I guess I was wrong. If they do build this, it should go in the parking crater in southern end of downtown.

While south downtown definitely has the open space for something like this, it would be the worst location for it.  Such a location would leave it completely isolated from hotels, restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues.  We are currently paying $500,000 to study how to develop around and create connectivity for the BOK center, why would we want to repeat that same mistake with another large publically funded venue?

Building this type of venue seems like a no-brainer (with appropriate financing), but the location is the real issue.  We need to stop repeating the mistakes of the past and building entertainment venues in isolated parts of downtown.
