In 1986 the city leaders began debating on where to build this huge stadium which would be alot bigger than the Dolphin stadium in midtown. The location was finally chosen on May 23rd, 1989. Located right along the extension of the everglades freeway and I-95, so it would have alot of visibility from the freeways. The stadium began construction on June 6th, 1989 and was completed on September 23rd, 1991. The Seahawk Stadium Center was finally complete, and ready for concerts and events. Some famous stars who have performed at the astadium include: Britney Spears, Lady gaga, Rascal Flatts, Kieth urban, Metro Station, Timbaland, John Mayor, Boys Like Girls.
I-95 runs diagonal across the screen and the everglades freeway runs stragiht through. Originally the everglades freeway just ended at I-95 but then in 1992 the city decided to extend the freeway to Atlantic Blvd. to help ease the heavy traffic during peak concert seasons. Hallandale high School can be seen in the bottom left hand screen.
