I for one look forward to that development in the channelside area. It has been a couple decades in the making. There are many possibilities for the area I've no doubt he will complete the task.

After all these years and it's still a wasteland coming from the north, where the majority of the parking is.

Group with ties to Lightning owner Vinik buys more land near Forum

Quote:
TAMPA — A Colorado investment group with ties to Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik bought an additional $10 million in land across from the Forum this week.

When added to about 14 acres it already had purchased in the same area, the new acquisition gives the father-son team of Ray and Michael Baker most of the land along Channelside Drive between Morgan Street and Meridian Avenue.

It wasn’t immediately clear what the Bakers, who have a Denver-area firm called Gold Crown Management, plan to do with the land because they couldn’t be reached for comment.

However, Vinik has acknowledged in the past that he is a partner in the Bakers’ land purchases. Vinik has said he wants to build a large entertainment-oriented development in the Channelside Drive area, and some local officials also hope Vinik and the Bakers will consider building a stadium there for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Neither Vinik nor the Bakers have indicated publicly they would do so, though.

Traffic would be hellacious on a night with both hockey and baseball.

The traffic after a Bucs game isn't that bad. Pretty sure they could manage a baseball and hockey game.

It took me well over an hour to get back to St. Pete after the Thursday night game when the bucs were also playing. Normally it takes about 20 minutes.

If they put baseball downtown there will have to be major changes to Kennedy/Ashley/crosstown exits out and traffic corridors. No way downtown can have 50k plus in one spot without massive problems as downtown is setup currently.
