HOK Sports presented its designs for St. Paul's new $130M arena yesterday, "trumpeting the glass-encased, suite- filled facility as a symbol of the city's downtown turnaround and a place tailor-made for hockey aficionados," according to Curt Brown of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. The 18,632-seat arena will feature a glass exterior, lending it a "transparent feeling," and will have a "wide-open" main concourse that circles around the rink. Brown adds that the "steep, opera-house-like" upper deck is "reminiscent of" Maple Leaf Gardens. The arena's lower-bowl will include 22 rows totaling 9,000 seats, all accessible from the main concourse. The facility will feature 74 luxury suites and an club-seat level with 3,000 seats (STAR TRIBUNE, 6/18).
