What is the point of a four person loge box? It is not like you can entertain anyone in there. I think they have misplanned that one, especially at their pricing model. Either make them 6-8, or just use that space for more premium seats.
Amen to the thoughts on extending the canopy. Canopy should cover as many seats as possible.
I also like the TCU model with an open bar in the club and allowed to take drinks to your seat. Those seats would sell like hotcakes and more than offset the money they are trying to raise with the loge deals. People would be much more willing to make a construction donation if that was in the works.
I completely agree. 40k initial and 12k a year for four removable seats? Even if I could afford them, I don't think it'd be worth it.
TCU has a problem in that their food courts and club areas are so inviting and well equipped with TVs, the students and fans don't watch the game from their seats and it looks like, and sounds like the stadium has a lot fewer fans that it really does.
A little disappointing that the Lettermen's Lounge will be on the visitor's side.
Why? I think it silly that we have come to think of the stadium in home/visitor side. I hope we come to think of them as west/east.
The truth is that there is already a portion of the main concourse on the west side taken up for the founders suites. You certainly couldn't put the lounge on the club or suite level due to the club and suites getting in the way.
I think you are really limited unless you put it on the east side.
Is it on the side closest to tailgating/river/etc...?
I don't really think there is going to be home and visitors side. The suites/loge will go around the stadium. It's a true horseshoe so no separation between the sides. Visitors will go in the corner somewhere.
Loge/suites only on West side.
They told me on Monday there were Loge on both sides.
Spent 30 minutes on the phone with Greg Meyer yesterday. Just relaying what he told me, who knows????
In all the renderings it appears that the river/tailgating side is what folks might call the 'visitor' side. As you said in another post, there is no more visitor side. Just some visitor corners.
That is who I talked with on Monday. He and another guy in development.
The renderings all looked like the suites & boxes would be on the west side, but it could be that just boxes could go on the east side without suites. Or even that demand has changed the layout and more boxes are being drawn into the design/structure.
Greg told me Loge on West side only as well.
For those wanting the 300 boxes and booze on a rainy day just bring a BU pop up tent and go full redneck.
That's actually a great idea. It would be super cheap and Baylor could install individual green canvas canopies over those boxes.
I'm thinking more like Smith & Hawken vs Walmart pop-up. Could be nice actually. Heck, make them retractable by cranking them back to close up or extend out if its sunny or misty.
Again, the main stadium canopy **may** actually provide coverage just way high above but it may not.

Updated renderings of the Loge boxes. Rolling office chairs?
