Fifth Third Arena Renovation

Looks like this was leaked on Twitter earlier. Plans presented to Populous to UC. UC has to agree by August it sounds like. Would be ready by the 2017-18 season as originally planned.

There are renderings!!

Capacity would drop to 10,818, but it looks beautiful.

Not even close to the same. Maybe you should go back and look at those renderings again.

Wow that really gives me hope. I was thinking they needed to knock it down and build a brand new arena, but this really does look great! The capacity is perfect too. We do not need 13,186 for the majority of our games.

What's different besides a second row above the student section? And corner court seats?

The top level is being completely renovated to eliminate the poor sight line seats that are so often complained about. It appears the majority (if not all) of the seats will now have backs. Like you said they added another level above the student section and corner seats (both huge additions in their own right). There will be more luxury seating options that will help bring in revenue in the same way that they will for the new Nippert. Outside the seating bowl it appears a second level will be added to the concourses. Furthermore, there will be new amenities for concessions and bathrooms. And, i might be wrong, but it looks like they are making changes to the outside of the building as well to make it easier on the eye.

But other than that, it's the same.

I love it! With this and the new nippert uc will have it all. Just wish they could start this immediately following the final home game and put it on the fast track to be ready for next season, but nonetheless still very excited
