(WHAS11) The arena chairman said it’s onward and upward from now on for the new downtown arena.
The Arena Authority met Monday morning to discuss, among many things, the topping-off ceremony; which is when the last beam will be put in place.
Jim Host, Arena Chairman said, “It’s a very important part of any project when the last beam goes in place; you go about finishing the interior of it.”
The project is focused on saving energy at the arena and construction is on schedule. The Authority is confident that the opening will be no later than November 1.
There will be a series of public gatherings for people to see the arena before November 1, possibly in late October.
