The University of New Mexico’s plan for a stadium-side entertainment project has died – at least for now.
The Lobo Development Corp. board on Friday voted to end its relationship with 54 Development, the group it selected to kick-start a “sports and entertainment district” on the South Campus, despite 54’s request to keep moving forward.
The 54 team – including local businessmen Paul Silverman and Steve Chavez, and former Lobo football star Brian Urlacher – had in December 2015 signed a ground lease to build on a one-acre site just west of Dreamstyle Stadium.
