RE: New Details and Renderings for Legacy Arena Renovation
Other than the different new blah color scheme, there isn't a lot of new information about the arena redo.

Overview

Old:

The article does reveal the projected opening date for the new stadium; Thursday July 15, 2021 - Opening ceremonies for the 2021 World Games.

RE: New Details and Renderings for Legacy Arena Renovation
With new renderings for the arena (that has a later opening date), maybe new stadium renderings aren't far from being released?

I hadn't seen all of the details previously released:

"An added glass wall with floor space will allow for natural light within an expanded area perfect for exhibitions, showcases and other programming.

The primary entrance into the arena will be reoriented to Ninth Avenue and 19th Street North.

Landscaping and contrasting paint colors will make for a more aesthetically pleasing building.

Inside the arena, club-level boxes and VIP suites will be one noticeable difference. Modern seating will be installed, enhancements that build on the use of smartphones and technology will be added. Improved concessions are in the plan as well as an option that could allow for delivery to individual seats.

Other changes are planned for behind the scenes areas that will allow for the larger tour buses, increased number of tractor-trailers and other logistics support that comes with modern concert and entertainment productions."

RE: New Details and Renderings for Legacy Arena Renovation
Earlier articles suggested that some regular seating might be sacrificed to provide new luxury box spaces. Has anything definite been written about how many regular seats the renovated arena will still have? Those renderings look great.
