Cavs Officials Give Behind-The-Scenes Look At Arena Renovations
The transformation of Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is "nearing its homestretch," as Cavaliers officials yesterday guided media, execs and sponsors on a "guided tour of the ongoing construction site," according to Marc Bona of the Cleveland PLAIN DEALER. The new features include a curtain wall on the north side that is "being built with several thousand panels rising to the arena's upper reaches." Other additions include a "flex wall" that will "accommodate Instagram messages." There will also be a "significant amount of artwork" included in the redesigned arena. There will be "much clearer signage -- both in sight and design." TVs and electronic info boards will also be "mounted close to portals for guidance." A lower-level concession stand is being "removed to add more space for people," one of the "least flashiest changes mentioned but one of the most important" (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 6/5).
