The new arena construction is under way.
Here are some pictures from the SeaGate Centre.

Do you work in the SeaGate Centre? Here's why I ask, in the pics on your blog, I've thought you looked really familiar and it's been bugging me. I used to have to go to the SeaGate Centre for my old job (specifically, I had to go to the CVB) and I'm wondering if that's why I think I recognize you? (Sorry to put this on your blog ...)

P.S. I used to work in the National City Bank building - I think it would be cool to still work there and watch the arena go up.

HAHA! Small world. Yes, I work in the same building as the CVB folks, just on the SeaGate side. I wish you still visited here :)

Finally! It's been driving me crazy! I used to work at FLS Marketing and we did stuff for the CVB and SeaGate. I organized some stuff and did some media stuff for the turbine press conference - I swear now that you were there?

Iris Took said...

YES! I have been here for almost 3 years! I have pics of that press conference. I am going to look at them now. HAHA! This is nuts!

You two are funny.
I'm lost. What streets is the new arena going to be on?

Iris Took said...

It is going to be downtown. Picture the old Club Bijou - GONE. It was where these big holes are.
The new arena will be Jefferson to Madison Streets. St. Clair/Superior to Huron. Does that help?

Basically it is going to be about two blocks North of 5/3 Stadium.

Very exciting, but sad...so many *Bijou* memories just bulldozed away...
HA!
