No but the city did ask for about $1.1 million to be set aside for the score clock in the original RFP.

The suite level contains the private boxes at the sides and 4 rows of club seating at the one end. Is that the balcony seating you are referring to.

According to Herod's column, you can exit either bridge but can only enter the facility through the north bridge. This is the first I've heard about that although I know SMG was originally against having two main entrances and therefore wanted only one bridge built.

I think the concern is that there will only be a box office at the north entrance so if someone without a ticket tries to enter via the south bridge, they won't be able to buy tickets there and would therefore need to turn around, walk back on the bridge to St. Paul St. and then down St. Paul St. to the north bridge. However, I think proper signage telling people that there is no access to the box office from the south bridge would eliminate that concern. You could even station a person at the beginning of the south bridge to make sure that no fans enter the bridge without a ticket. But that person would need to be paid, as would additional ticket takers at the south entrance, which I think is a big concern for SMG.

If it becomes an issue, I think they will have to open the south bridge as a entrance. The other option is for the city to build a box office at the beginning of the south bridge, which was an extra cost option on one of the losing proposals. Of course, that is still something that can be done in the future if needed.

I guess (??) I thought a balcony level would be a level of seating pretty much encircling the lower bowl.

So basically it's going to be a single large bowl design.

That also makes sense. Actually probably better sense. That way you can have one single box office location. And since people arrive all at different times - some like getting there as soon as doors open, some 10mins before puck drop - it shouldn't be a problem. And since everyone leaves at the SAME time, it would be best to have both walkways available.

Yep, I think a simple big "BOX OFFICE: USE OTHER BRIDGE -->>" sign would suffice.

Or a simple chain going across with a sign in the middle. Then someone could remove the chain at 2nd intermission or whatever.

Too bad they didn't use my design where there's 2 bridges that go to an open entrance area, and have the box office in the middle of that area.
