It all began in 1987, which is when the Greater Milwaukee Committee began studying the possibility of building a new ballpark. The following year, in 1988, Milwaukee County asked the state to donate a 46-acre parcel for the site of the future stadium. Construction officially began in January 1991 and, in 1995 as construction continued, the Brewers made a presentation to the Milwaukee Stadium Commission. Among the issues addressed was a commitment of $60-90 billion to build a new ballpark. An economic report estimated that a convertible-roof stadium would result in 750,000 additional spectators each season, a whopping $62.6 million in additional spending and four-year construction spending of $169.5 million. Several years later, in 1997, the Brewers announced an asymmetrical design for Miller Park.
