If this is the proposed construction site, when will happen to Frank Sinatra Blvd and that one highway ramp inside the red box?

Are there any modern arenas that have built-in tunnels for main thoroughfares?

Forgive my ignorance atm.

From recent experience on the new arena in Sacramento, the NBA did not approve of a parking garage or any type of public access underneath the arena. I was told it was for security reasons.

I think you can imagine why it would be a problem to have 19,000 people at an event and a large van or truck can be parked directly under all the spectators.

I really don't think there are any arenas in North America that have roadways going through the actual building.

No longer around -- but, Market Square Arena in Indianapolis was built over Market Street. Traffic on the four lane street flowed directly under it. It was in operation from about 1974 - 1999, and was imploded in about 2001.

Not necessarily true. Market Square Arena only had a "skybridge" that connected its parking garage to buildings across the street.

Personally, I think this new arena (if it EVER comes to fruition) will take up the existing parking lots/decks adjacent to New York-New York and Aria, and the service roads and on-ramps/off-ramps will run around the back exterior of the facility- much like the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Kinda disappointed with that. No surprise about the of LED media facade, though. Sounds like there will be premium seating and suites on different levels, so maybe this arena is just a newer version of the Staples Center.

Some further details:

Construction on the $350 million privately financed arena is expected to start next April or May, with a projected opening in spring 2016.

The arena design calls for an 85-foot-high atrium and exterior balconies on an energy-efficient building. That structure will serve as a centerpiece of a 12-acre outdoor pedestrian mall featuring restaurants and retail shops stretching from Las Vegas Boulevard to Frank Sinatra Drive.

The Populous architectural firm, based in Kansas City, Mo., designed the arena and focused on complimenting the stark contrasts between the Strip and the desert that surrounds it.

A giant glass facade on the arena’s eastern edge will be equipped with an LED overlay to evoke the neon glow from the Strip.

The design of the arena’s western side will mimic the color and shadows of the mountains surrounding the Las Vegas Valley, using metal bands.

With Las Vegas already having the Thomas & Mack Center, the MGM Grand's Garden Arena, and Mandalay Bay's Events Center, would this new arena be a white elephant unless an NBA or NHL team did, in fact, relocate there?

I would anticipate that we're going to see consolidation amongst all the arenas in Las Vegas in the coming years. This new proposal, MGM Grand Garden, and Mandalay Bay would be under common ownership, allowing for the events to be distributed based on capacity and space requirements. If anything, I wouldn't be shocked to see Mandalay's venue close entirely if this comes to fruition, being that it is bare bones and could facilitate an expansion of their convention space.

Thomas and Mack is in need of major renovations in the coming years that will almost certainly see its capacity reduced significantly. While this will upgrade the venue and allow it to remain viable for UNLV, it will probably mean events like the National Finals Rodeo, any concerts or boxing to be hosted, as well as professional sports would simply move to the new facility.

Definitely won’t be a white elephant. Professional major league sports aren’t the only thing that will be hosted there. Just look at everything Staples Center does other than basketball and hockey. There is really no place to have a major concert like Justin Timberlake or Beyonce. Also, as the above poster said, different events require different hosting capabilities. Major conferences could be hosted in the new arena that aren’t suitable for the smaller arenas or the convention center. It just gives event organizers more options to find the perfect fit for their particular event. There is definitely a place for an arena of this magnitude in Las Vegas.

MGM Grand Garden might be the arena who's future could be in doubt, Mandalay Bay Events Center is more a mid-size arena (tops out at 12,000, MGM is close to 17,000). This new arena would probably get the really big concerts, boxing and UFC PPV's that are normally held at MGM.

AEG are obviously concert promoters and are also a minority owner in Golden Boy Boxing Promotions. The L.A. Kings and Lakers for example, play a preseason game every year at MGM, those would move to this new arena.

Who do you think will get naming rights for this new arena?

Late to the party here, but this is untrue. Market Street did run underneath the arena...here's a picture I personally took back in 1985 or so:



Drove underneath that myself a couple of times.
