Default The ‘New’ First Ontario Centre

Hamilton has just approved a plan for a massive reno/revitalization plan to be completed in time for the 2023-24 season(assuming there is one, and assuming everything has returned to relative normalcy by then). Rather than tear down the former Copps Coliseum, a comprehensive renovation will be taking place to the tune of $500,000,000. Obviously, for that kind of coin, this will be much more than an arena upgrade. But that being said, I think we are going to really start appreciating more and more how much arena we ended up getting for the paltry sum of $50 million

I wonder if this is enough for the Bulldogs to stay downtown. You have to figure the first season after the reno they will have a much easier time selling tickets, as people want to see inside the newer barn.

Planned FirstOntario Centre renovations include a new building exterior, a "transformation" of the lower bowl, expanded concourse level, and new curtaining system for the upper bowl balcony. The group proposes a microbrewery, suites and hospitality clubs.
Expanded concourse level is the best news of all. If that place is anywhere near full, that concourse is a zoo. You can barely move.

Microbrewery!!!!

The $500 million is for a number of facilities, including the Arena, Convention Centre, Concert Hall, Art Gallery and mixed use development including housing.

The renovation of the arena is $50 million. That is a much better plan than the proposal for a new arena at the mall that was talked about previously.
