FAN FRIENDLY: CORESTATES CENTER PROFILED
Published December 19, 1995
The emphasis at the $215M CoreStates Center will be on friendliness towards the fans, according to the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS. Richard Ruben, President of Spectacor which owns the arena, said the facility will generate $25M in revenue from premium seating, but he noted ticket prices for Flyers games have not been determined. Other details: There are 10 restrooms on two public concourses, compared to four at the Spectrum next door. All five of the concourses are twice as large as their Spectrum counterparts. And while the lower inner bowl at the new arena is the same size as the Spectrum's, the building is more than twice as big. There are only 3,600 parking spaces at the Spectrum, while the CoreStates Center will have 6,150 spaces when completed (Bill Fleischman, PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 12/19).
