very nice one good location, retractable roof and pitch. Although having the pitch unprotected during a russian winter because there's a convention in the arena seems a bit ridiculous.

Great stadium in a great city (too bad about the name though!). Any construction updates or schedules?

Judging from the grass bank surround (lower right pic), I'd say it was on the site of the current Communist-era Kirov Stadium, which is on the banks of the Neva.





This is the only picture I can find that was taken from outside the ground.



I think the big, grassy banks around the perimeter are the giveaway.

It's definitely the same site - you can see the rowing lake in the bottom right rendering as well as this aerial of the Kirov:

They did the same thing in Leipzig with the old Zentralstadion (which looked very similar), turning an old Eastern Bloc-style bowl site into a modern stadium. If you remember, Leipzig was one of last year's World Cup venues.
