Headlines: More Football Stadium Speculation as Temple Demos Buildings

Plus: Rainbow crosswalks, sexy office space and more roundabouts!

It seems like every time Temple looks to demolish any university-owned structures (of any size), the old football stadium question starts to pop up. Remember all the hubbub over William Penn High School? The latest round of speculation is actually quite intriguing.

Naked Philly recently spotted that the Triangle Apartments near Broad and Norris, long used as graduate student housing, have been razed. Given their proximity to the recreation facilities between Broad and 16th Street, it’s possible that Temple would have enough room to finally build that 30,000-seat (or so) stadium facility for their football program, which may or may not just be “big, bad idea” anyway.

Again, this is pure speculation, as Temple hasn’t announced their plans for the site. It was marked as “recommended for removal” under their recent master plan, Visualize Temple. So, will the Temple football stadium happen at this (or any) campus location? We’ll be sure to update you once more information becomes available.
