The article reports that baseball team Florida Marlins has reached an agreement with negotiators on a bond-financed US$420 million retractable-roof stadium in Miami, Florida. The deal was in the works for more than a year. It calls for a 38,000-seat stadium with a retractable roof and a 2,500-space parking garage to be built adjacent to the Orange Bowl stadium near downtown Miami. The deal got delayed over how the team would pay for any construction cost overruns.
