Could be, My earlier comment was in reference to the BTS suggestion that had been made in the thread.

The virtue of having parking at Brian Timmis of course is that there is no associated land cost to building the lot, something that is not insignificant when you consider that by Shoup's measure at least, 1,500 parking spots of undiluted surface parking would run about $6m – and, incidentally, consume about as much land as is bordered by Cannon, Balsam, Beechwood and Melrose. That's a fair bit of land, which would obviously need to be purchased (a parking structure would reduce the footprint but increase the bottom line costs), and if you're eyeing industrial land north of Barton Street for parking, you can add remediation/capping costs to the bargain. I'm going to assume that you could roll the cost of shuttles to the stadium into your parking premium. Or just encourage fans to brave the three blocks from the tracks to the turnstiles.
