The first mixed-use building being developed around the new baseball stadium in downtown Winston-Salem is bringing a big-league feel to the ballpark."Rustic, urban"? Let's break that down with the help of Mr. Webster, shall we:
The developers said yesterday that One Ballpark Center, a six-story building, will be within reach of a long home run past the right-field fence -- a la Camden Yards, the home field of the Baltimore Orioles.
The building is being designed to blend with the rustic, urban architecture of the 5,500-seat stadium.
Rustic: of, relating to, or suitable for the countryHey, it's their stadium. They can describe it however they want. Anyway:
Urban: of, relating to, characteristic of, or constituting a city
"The office is being built to be part of the facilities of the stadium," Prim said. "It will offer a great view of the ballpark and the downtown skyline to its occupants . . . It is anticipated that users of the office space will buy tickets to participate fully in the stadium experience," he said.I don't know about you, but if you put me in an office building directly behind the rightfield wall of a ballpark, I'm going to "participate fully in the stadium experience" by bringing binoculars and my own beer.
