SEEING IS BELIEVING: In Edmonton, Terry Jones notes he had the opportunity to spend "two hours in the Katz Group office on the 17th floor of the Bell Tower overlooking the site" of a new downtown arena for the Oilers. Jones: "I left there totally blown away by what the building is going to look like when the Oilers begin play there two years from now. ... This is going to knock your hockey socks off and win rave reviews as the champion of them all." City of Edmonton Corporate Properties Manager Rick Daviss said, "You are going to see the structure start to come out of the ground in the fall of this year. It will be closed off with the exterior, and next summer we start working on the interior. And we're looking at having it all completed in the late summer of 2016 so we're ready for the opening of the 2016-17 season in September" (EDMONTON SUN, 4/17).
