True, it does seem awfully large(the surfboard thing).
Market square was interesting, though I hope something interesting can fill its place.

It's really cool to see the lights on inside the stadium at night. Just imagine it during Monday night games.

Love that huge window. Its great how you can see into the stadium. Can't wait for the MNF aerial cameras to peek down in through the top and through the big window with the place packed with fans in blue!!

Found out last week that I get the lovely skyline as a backdrop during games. I'm gonna love looking out that window. I'm getting more and more excited. Especially about those nice wide concourses and ground level entry. Too bad we can't get World Cup games until at least 2018. That'd be a ton of fun.

Hi-def highlights 'showroom' part of Lucas Oil sponsorship
http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...INESS/71210031

Star report

All that will be missing is the cash register.

hhgregg today announced that as part of being a sponsor of Lucas Oil Stadium, the Indianapolis-based electronics and appliance retailer will create a showroom-like interactive media center at the southern entrance. Lucas Oil Stadium opens in 2008.

The area will be known as the “hhgregg South Gate” and will feature flat-panel, high-definition televisions.

Officials with hhgregg and the stadium's main tenant, the NFL's Indianapolis Colts, will reveal more details about the partnership after a news conference this afternoon.

But hhgregg President Dennis May couldn't contain his enthusiasm about the media center.

“When fans come through the gate they aren’t going to believe their eyes," May said in a prepared statement. "In the next few months we’ll be creating a spectacular environment where fans can interact with the latest products, get real-time scoring and check their fantasy results.

"The hhgregg Gate will be a destination within a destination, with staff on hand to answer questions and provide support, with comfortable seating for our guests to sit and enjoy pre- and post-game festivities."

While no design was immediately available, May said fans should think of it as the "coolest hhgregg showroom you’ve ever seen, multiplying it by ten."
hhgregg was founded in the city in 1955 and began publicly trading stock this year. The collaboration with the Colts will involve the company's most innovative and aggressive sports-marketing program in hhgregg history, officials said.

A co-worker of mine pointed out a missed marketing opportunity of sorts a few weeks ago:

Lucas Oil Field (get it? ) instead of Lucas Oil Stadium.

It's clever, and makes sense. I'm surprised that none of the powers that be thought of it, or if they did, went with it.

Any thoughts?

The LOS is huge. I'm suprised they were able to pull off a classic look on such a massive structure.

Does anyone know what these two stacks are going to be? Maybe information centers?



You can see them both on the rendering, but I have know idea.



Here is a better rendering.
