7:29 am
pin downtown tampa with that. pinteresting you're in tampa. p>>reporter: i know. pit's all very interesting, pright? pit's all new. pbig meeting is happening this pmorning at 8:30 a.m. pyou'll -- we'll have the rays pownership here as well as the pmayor of tampa, bob buckhorn and pthe commissioner hagen here and pseveral business owners here. pthey'll all be meeting in the ptampa store in a little less pthan an hour from now. pthey're talking about a new pstadium, where it's going to go, phow much it's going to cost and pif it's a good idea to build psomething like this in tampa. prays released a wish list sent pto the owner of saint pete and palso to hillsborough county. pthey're asking their new home to pbe at least 20 acres, accessible pto major roadways and population pcenters as well as close to pexisting and future mass transit
7:30 am
penvironment where you can come pearly and stay late. prays ownership want to do that pin three steps. pteam officials will analyze the pstrengths and witnesses of pbusiness centers in pinellas and phillsborough county and keep in pmind that corporate customers pare a major priority. pright now the rays are pstruggling over at the trop. pnext the team will identify and pevaluate sites using six pcriteria, including the signs of pgeometry of the property, pregional connectivity, site preadiness and whether a ball ark would spur development. pthe last step would be to pdetermine if any sites satisfy pall of those wants. pit's a good idea of what the prays are looking for, go to pbaltimore. pcamden yards, a beautiful ball ark rated the best in fan and pmedia surveys and restaurants, pretail and entertainment in the psame location. pit's really interesting because pthis ball park was built in the
7:31 am
pmodel for new ball parks. pit really sounds a lot like what pthe rays want. pit's a lot like what jeff vinik pis providing at tampa with the pamalie arena with the lightning, pkind of a one stop shop. phow much is this stadium going pto cost? pif you talk to the industry pexperts, they're going to tell pyou about $600 million. pand that -- it could cost more pdepending on if they want a pretractable roof. pthere are several sites on the ptable. pwe know that tropicana is pcurrently one site in st. pete. pother sites include the florida pfairgrounds, the derby lane, ptampa greyhound track, tampa ark apartments and that plocation is interesting because pit's close to parking garages in pboth tampa and ybor and it's palso 21 acres so it fits both pcriterias but there's an issue phere. pthe apartment complex there is phome to 372 low income families. pso the city will have to make psure that those residents are
7:32 am
pbuild a stadium there. palso keep in mind, if the rays pdo decide to leave st. pete, pthey'll have to pay the city $24 pmillion but if you think about pit, when you talk about a pstadium of $600 million, that's pa drop in the bucket. pif the rays really want to move pand this is the right spot for pit here in hillsborough county por tampa, i'm sure they're pwilling to pay $24 million. p>>russell: we'll talk later. pthank you. pand the rays need a stadium that pattracts fans. pthey've been at the bottom in phome attendance for four years. pyou'll notice a steady decline pof fans attending games at the ptrop. pand the team was competitive for pmost of those four years. pthey made the playoffs in 2013. pthey won 90 games the year pbefore that. p>>laura: 7:36 now and heart pdisease is the leading cause of pdeath in this country right now. pone in every four deaths. p610,000 a day. pand today is the chance to premember those victims.
