Lol, they're making it into a Math & Science Center, with some attractions and things of that nature in there. Actually they're about to renovate it and make it look modern. I saw some of the renderings, and it looks pretty baller, IMHO.

That is alot of money.

Right! But the difference is we're not talking about building the Astrodome right now. Houston just isn't ready to let it go!

Option 3 includes the movie studios as wel. And the renderings are on Reliant Park's website.

Here you go Ladarron, wait for the entire thing to load before viewing. It's a presentation with pictures in the background. So you have to slowly go through all of them after they're done loading.

It will have pictures of the new hotel, sky bridge, and expansion areas, and garage and transportation hub along with the redone Astrodome.

Why is it not a good idea, in your opinion?

A movie studio in Houston would fail, Houston is not LA. (no offence)
