    Default A Bit of a New Development for Seattle Expansion

    As this story warns toward the end, expansion to Seattle is a long way from happening. However, this news is a wee positive step.

    I live north of the city and the revised proposal was great to hear. I doubt the city leadership, which is almost radicalized left, will accept this proposal either. The best for the Chris Hansen arena proposal is to get it in front of the people who are still very upset that their basketball team was allowed to leave. If they could get a hockey team with a basketball team I think they would be very happy with that as well. The NHL would work here.

    Wow, Chris Hansen must be a very rounded guy. He busts pedophiles on To Catch A Predator , makes sweet tea to make those pedophiles feel at home, and is now bringing the NHL to Seattle.

    He's all about fighting injustice

    Pedophiles should be in hell, or jail, whichever comes first.

    The Supersonics should have never left Seattle.

    Tea should never be unsweetened...

    ...EVER.

    The process moves slowly along . . . .

    The Seattle city council won't revisit the new proposal until the spring. And the KeyArena renovation idea muddies the waters.

    This is a pretty good article discussing some of the challenges of NHL expansion to Seattle. (The Seattle Times does limit the number of articles one can view per month, but I don't imagine that should be a problem for most folks here.)

    Default A Bit of a New Development for Seattle Expansion

    https://www.pollstar.com/article/aeg-group-pulls-out-of-keyarena-project-131937

    " Seattle Partners, an investor group that includes AEG, withdrew its bid to renovate Seattle's KeyArena June 4, because of concerns about how the city has conducted review of the proposals.


    Seattle Partners — a group that combined arena giant AEG and Hudson Pacific Properties — announced it is pulling out of the process after submitting plans in April for a proposed $521 million renovation of KeyArena."

    Wonder if this will affect a NHL team in Seattle

    I thought they were going to put a new arena near the baseball and football stadiums area.

    There are two prominent proposals floating around the Puget Sound. One is to renovate Key Arena. The other is to build a new arena in the Sodo district, which is the area just south of downtown, already occupied by CenturyLink Field (NFL Seahawks) and Safeco Field (MLB Mariners). The main problem with the latter is traffic concerns, especially among truckers moving goods from the docks to Interstate-5.

    This seems like a positive sign for the renovation group...
