Renovation of this existing civic arena, located in Wheeling, West Virginia, includes a complete analysis and update of the fan experience, integration with an adjacent riverside park and ADA compliance.
Results of the Renovation
Updates include seating tiers & amenities, scoreboard & video boards, concessions, and an entry addition. The entry addition relocates the main entry to street level and provides a new team shop, ticket office, and large program space. The addition can be used to support civic functions in the adjacent riverside park independently while the arena remains secure. The new elevator allows ADA access to all concourse levels and exterior plazas from the main entry. The addition’s prominent, framed curtain walls act as illuminated billboards to increase visibility of the arena year round. All seating is replaced with modern seats & amenities, they include a new rink-side experience, table-top seating, additional premium tiers, new accessible areas, and new railing throughout. MSA Sport partnered with M&G Architects of Wheeling.
