The "bold and glassy" design by HKS for the planned $975 million Minnesota Vikings football stadium has been approved by the Minneapolis Planning Commission. The design plan will be sent to the city’s zoning and planning committee and is scheduled for a full City Council vote on Aug. 30. Groundbreaking has been tentatively planned for October. However, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority has hired an attorney to oversee a "due diligence" review and extensive background check of Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and the real estate business run by his family, which could delay "final approval of key development agreements."
