Sometime this spring, the vacant grass fields Lee McElroy can see from his office will turn into a construction site six years in the making.

The University at Albany dramatically shrank its plans for an outdoor stadium as the recession slashed what donors were willing or able to give. Record-high deficits meant the state had no ability to spur the work at the public university.

Albany Business Journal and every other citation said $14.1M for the stadium. Even the bid contracts only requested a bond of $15M. I would love to think we're stepping it up on phase one but I doubt it. My money is $14.1M for the stadium. $18M total for all 3 projects. I would love to be wrong.
