After all the anticipation we finally got an estimate time for Edmonton's new Arena! It is said to commence being built in Spring 2014 and to be finished by the Fall of 2016 ( Of course this is just an estimate) quite exciting!! As of now it is currently in the planning stages. This Arena plays an immense role in REVIVING Downtown Edmonton. It will be the new home for the Edmonton Oilers , the Oil Kings and will be the venue for future concerts and events. This Arena will be found between 101 and 105 Street and 104 & 105 Avenues. Over 80 percent of Edmontonians said that this new Arena will be a definite landmark for our lovely city. There will be over 19000 seats ( which is almost adding 3000 seats ), AMAZING sight lines that will be much closer to the ice, courts and concerts. Whats more?? - Winter Gardens; which will be a foyer over 104 Ave that is said to be Alberta weather proof. This Arena is not being built alone, besides Winter Gardens there will be a community skating rink, a shopping area, new restaurants and even hotels. The arena will definitely be an ALL DAY event. The city is also making an extension for the LRT which will take individuals directly to and from the Arena. The Cost of all of this is said to be around 604 million dollars and the city is adding $ 279 million the rest of it will come from taxes.... From the sounds of it I think it will be worth it!!

Just a little information about expanding of our city!
