Vikings stadium: 'They need a lot of money to make this happen'
The Minnesota Vikings professional football showed off its latest dream: A new stadium in downtown Minneapolis with a retractable roof. The $1 billion (that's no typo) project also includes 4,500 condos and apartments, office space, restaurants and shops. "They need a lot of money to make that happen," architect Carolyn Krall of Landform Engineering told the Star Tribune. While it's unclear who will actually pay for all of this, one thing is clear. The $200 million retractable roof will cost about as much as the new Guthrie Theatre and Walker Art Center expansion combined ($125 million and $67 million).
