-Scroll to bottom for update- Renovations to the Scottrade Center ice system and control rooms are beginning this summer, but it is the future plans that have Blues fans buzzing about the downtown arena. Today a couple artist renderings were released of some of the new features coming to Scottrade Center, most likely next summer.
None of this is a done deal however. The team is siting losses and says they need the public to help pay for this massive project. Improvements include a new team store, an indoor/outdoor beer garden, new premium seating, a larger scoreboard, and completely renovated concourses to name a few.
In photo above you can see the new beer garden and in the photo below you can see the new concourse design which has openings for views out into the arena bowl.
UPDATE: One more rendering has surfaced which appears to show the sky level of the arena with a new paint job, extended viewing area out over the upper bowl seats, and a new lounge/bar area.
