Vikings Cutting Back on New Stadium

minnesota_vikings_2013To no surprise, the new Vikings stadium will cost more than originally imagined, as envisioned. So they’ll come up with a way to cover the extra costs, right?

Actually, it’s officially time to start throwing stuff out of the balloon basket.

According to Richard Meryhew of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, features are being trimmed from the new stadium.

Initially at risk are a 400-stall parking garage to be located a block north of the stadium, a skyway linked to a ramp a block south of the stadium, two large escalators, and up to 40 feet from the height of pivoting glass doors to be located at the main entrance.
