"Sources say Hansen’s group is pointing to a Sacramento City Commissioned “Sports Arena Site Analysis” done back in 2004. That study, still active on the city’s website as of this writing, looked at several locations for a new Kings arena. A “Cost Comparison Matrix” showed that of seven possible locations, the Downtown Plaza site (7th and K) was the most expensive."
"At the same time, Hansen's group will likely argue behind the scenes, that it’s Seattle deal has solid city and county approved financing, and $56 million in land."
Pretty hefty report. Think things have been ugly so far? Just wait.
