One Couple Has a Plan for Turning the Astrodome into Houston's "International Multicultural Dome" (i.e., Mostly an Office Park)

The husband-and-wife team of Regina and Ed Seale are trying to stop the Astrodome from becoming another parking lot, working independently on plans for what they call an "International Multicultural Dome" in the Reliant Park complex.

Their plan -- seen here on Facebook -- would turn the Dome into what amounts to an office park and possible international consulate for would-be tenants from around the globe, with the short distance from the Medical Center being framed as a plus.

"We will have office space available and space for exhibits. It will be a concert hall, a gallery and an educational center. It will be a center of entertainment for Houston," says Regina Seale.
