Luxury builder Toll Bros. is one of several developers looking into the redevelopment of a historic tennis stadium just outside of Manhattan, the Wall Street Journal reported on its blog.

The West Side Tennis Club’s leadership recently issued a request for proposals for the stadium that housed U.S. Open Tennis championships for decades. Monday, several would-be developers toured the site located in an upscale Queens, N.Y. neighborhood. Proposals are due in October.

A club representative declined to comment on developer’s interest.

But Toll, one of the country’s largest home builders, confirmed that division president David Von Spreckelsen attended Monday’s tour. The Horsham, Penn.-based company, which builds single-family homes and luxury condos, declined to comment further.

The 15,000-seat facility housed hasn’t been used much since the U.S. Open Tennis moved to a bigger space in Flushing Meadows, Queens, in the late 1970s.

No one wants to hear about how great it was 30 years ago. Experience is one thing, but relevance is just as important.
