Bridgestone Arena: further development of property

Recommended Posts


Will that be the final look? It will be cool to have digital signs, but for some reason that looks very temporary and just thrown out there.

At first I thought that was a picture of something they did just for the NFL Draft.

What will the digital signs be used for?       I hope they have the capacity to display video.     

I remember being excited when the Bridgestone announced they were installing an LED display on the back side of the arena, but was disappointed with the actual product, a small-ish screen that only displays static images.

30 year lease ready, just needs to be approved.and signed.

Highlights:

Ending city subsidies.     Increasing facilities fee on tickets.   Preds free to renovate. 

First plan is to add 1,200 new seats, and add an actual press box. I'd say some of those seats will come from the current press area. Looks like additional club area as well on the short end. 

I'm sure Mark will have ALL the details.

I spent a lot of time looking at the above photo to see where 1,200 new seats are. Is it all above the fan zone? It looks like SRO. I know Scotiabank arena in Toronto has SR0 above the  upper seating decks, they ran $110 for the second to final home game of the season this year. I've always thought that if expansion was possible it would take place on the south end.  My hope is that they wrap the two VU support columns with digital boards like the ones at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta and Ford Field in Detroit.

Anyway this deal is a win win for the Predators and Metro. I've been to about 15 different NHL/NBA arenas and Bridgestone Arena is the one of the nicest I've been in, It would be awesome to still be able to say that 30 years from now.

Side note: FedExForum in Memphis is just behind Bridgestone in "niceness" as well, in my opinion.
