    The work to prepare the area is underway. Rerouting some underground utilities and other infrastructure is the first step. Actual building construction will likely start in late spring.

    Here's some fairly uninformative info about the initial work

    As for what it will look like, I believe this is the plan. This rendering has been out there for a while, and I believe it to be an accurate portrayal of what it will look like, at least in terms of the exterior. Due south of the JACC and a little southeast of ND Stadium.

    Looks a lot like the exterior of Yost at Michigan, which was built in 1922.

    There's also this recent animated tour. You have to scroll down to get to the ND hockey arena video.

    I've started taking pictures of the area. Gonna keep a record for my scrapbook. Right now there's just a huge pile of dirt and broken pavement with those concrete tubes waiting to become conduits, but it won't be long til we can start to recognize what will be there.

    Also reminds me of Hobey Baker Rink, except with actual amenities...

    It's funny you say that. A lot of Michigan fans accuse ND of stealing the original design of Michigan Stadium (football) for their football stadium. I think the whole thing is stupid and petty, but now these people will have more ammo if the new ND hockey arena does in fact end up looking a lot like Yost (even if it's just on the outside).

    I wonder if Jeff Jackson's office going to flood just as often as Red's does too.


    I would like to see some more renderings/floor plans come to light soon. But that may just be my inner construction geek speaking.

    That's funny.

    Michigan based it's stadium design (1926-27) on the Yale Bowl (1914) (at least the big, inground aspect of it). The stadium shape is different -- Yale Bowl is an oval and Michigan is straight on the sides.

    Actually it isn't just an idle accusation. Its true. They were obviously much more similar before the current renovations to Michigan Stadium and Notre Dames addition in 1997. I don't know for sure they were designed by the same people, but memory says they were.

    Besides, sports stadiums are like rock music. Everybody steals everything from everyone else.

    It looks good. Renderings will always change somewhat when the final design decisions are made. I like the seat pitch and the atrium, as well as the timelessness of some of the details. The balconies are cool too.

    ND's stated references for the arena include the new arena at Miami and Matthews Arena in Boston.

    That rendering of the concourse definitely reminds me of Matthews. Almost more of a theater feel than a hockey arena feel.

    Any talk at ND of starting a women's program? Will the plans include locker room facilities for both genders? Or do we have a Michigan/Michigan State mentality here too.

    Is it necessary to have a 30ft gap between the upper and lower seating levels?

    cool. i just hope they aren't really going to have enclosed benches and penalty boxes. that'll just cause obstructed views.

    I think you may be overestimating that gap by at least 15 feet.

    It slightly resembles the old Boston Garden in some respects.

    Cool architecture.
