FAU Sets Up Web Camera to Offer Firsthand Look at Stadium Progress
BOCA RATON, FL (January 18, 2011) – Florida Atlantic University recently installed a web camera to document the highly anticipated construction of its 30,000-seat football stadium on the University’s Boca Raton campus. Viewers can catch the exciting progress online at www.fau.edu/stadium/earthcam.html.
The web cam posts a new snapshot every 15 minutes, which is immediately archived for remote viewing as far back as November 23, 2010 to gauge the progress that has been made. On any given day, the site allows viewers to enlarge the view, zoom in for a closer look or share it with others, as well as monitor the climate conditions on site.
The FAU stadium is the centerpiece of FAU’s Innovation Village, located in the north central area of campus. Home of the Owl football team, the open-air stadium, a $70 million project, is slated to feature 6,000 premium seats, including 24 suites, 26 loge boxes, 1,000 premier club seats and 4,000 priority club seats, and the latest, state-of-the-art amenities.
