A HOUSE THAT WILL HOST SOME WILD TIMES IS UNVEILED IN MN

          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).
