#2685170 New arena construction updates

Posted by SetecX on 28 August 2016 - 08:44 PM

Hey guys. Almost 1 year away from completion now. This update here ( http://wingsarena.tumblr.com ) is probably the last one I will be able to have where you can actually see into the arena.

 

I shall keep providing updates though. Crazy that 1 year ago, the place looked like this:

Almost have the steel wrapped all the way around on the lower portion. Bunch of concrete prefabs in place for the rows of seats in the upper.

This arena is going to be amazing. Awesome to see they are upping the ante to make it even sweeter. The suspended seating/walkway bit from the ceiling is cool. They have that at MSG. Anyways, I plan on going to the site this weekend to fly over it and will update the blog when I do.

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates the past month.

 

Made a few updates to the blog from a flyover yesterday: http://wingsarena.tumblr.com

 

You can start to see the positioning of the arena bowl in relation to the site now. Looking forward to flying over when they start to build the bowl.

 

As for updates coming into the colder months, as long as it isn't wet out and not super windy, I will still fly. If I can't fly, I will try to get pics best I can from the street level.

Hey guys, figured it was time to make a dedicated thread for any and all arena construction updates since there didn't seem to be one.

 

For anyone that does not know, I have a drone and I live in the Detroit area. I have been flying by the new arena site and getting photo/video of the progress.

 

You can see it all here: http://wingsarena.tumblr.com

Link to the Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.c...ygvqrMxq0GpkL0Q

 

I will try to be at least somewhat regular about posting updates. Especially once construction really starts rolling. For the most part its just a big hole in the ground right now.

 

If anyone else has construction photos/videos or if you find articles on the construction, post it all here.

I live right around there and I didn't even hear the implosion >.> 

 

Slept right through it. 

Wow you must have been tired. It was pretty loud. You can even hear it on my video over the noise of the props.

Made some updates to the blog. Sorry I didn't have any new content for a while. I will try to be more frequent. Should I make a new thread for construction updates?

Well this is what I was afraid of. What a bunch of garbage. I was dead set on going to this. Guess not now.


#2302499 Illitch "definitely committed" to new downtown arena

Posted by SetecX on 21 May 2012 - 06:30 PM

Having 2000+ less seats seems kind of dumb. If anything, I figured it would have been about 2k more. They have an opportunity here to make a really badass arena. I hope they don't screw it up. I can almost hear Ilitch now, pulling a Holland. "We like our 18,000 seats".

Why is Vince Vaughn at this game? Bandwagon joiner because his Hawks are out?
