Rogers Place is a $480 million, multi-use indoor arena under construction in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It will primarily be used for ice hockey, and for other indoor sports, but will also be configurable as a venue for concerts or other events. Construction started in March 2014, and the building is expected to open before the 2016–17 NHL season.
The arena will have a seating capacity of 18,641 as a hockey venue and 20,734 as a concert venue. Once completed, it will replace Rexall Place as the home of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers. The Edmonton Arena District is the fastest growing arena district in the history of similar mega-projects.
Rogers Place will be the first LEED Silver-Certified NHL facility in Canada, meeting LEED goals of development density, community connectivity and options for alternative transportation. McNish is currently on track to be the only LEED qualified steel provider in Edmonton.
The actual arena, when complete, will be 819,200 sq. feet, 43 metres tall with 182,000 sq. feet of underground parking space. The site itself spans 9.5 acres. In total, including the community rink, the Winter Garden and the corridor, the building area covers a total of 1,110,900 sq. feet.
Over 80,000 cubic metres of material was excavated to make way for Rogers Place, installing 700 piles, 10,000 pieces of steel weighing a combined 9,000 tonnes and using 24,000 cubic metres of concrete.
