Details emerge on potential Bills partnership
Buffalo, N.Y. -- A new report said a possible partnership between billionaire Tom Golisano and developer Scott Congel would include a new stadium for the Buffalo Bills on the site of a former mall in Erie County.
The Buffalo News reported late Wednesday night Golisano, an Irondequoit native and Paychex founder, and Congel, owner of the Medley Centre, have been in talks to buy the Bills and build a new stadium on land owned by Congel's father south of Buffalo.
The proposed stadium would be built on a 55-acre plot in the town of West Seneca. It would include a 60,000-seat stadium with a retractable roof.
The plot is on the site of the former Seneca Mall, now called The Shops at West Seneca, which only has two major tenants remaining (Tops and Kmart) and several acres of undeveloped land.
Neither Golisano nor Congel has commented on the reports.
