ACC Renovations

The Air Canada Centre Gets Refreshed

From the Globe:
The arena, which is approaching its 10th birthday in February of 2009, is in the early stages of a $50-million facelift, and the most noticeable change for this season is the addition of high-definition video screens to the scoreboard.

The rest of the ACC renovations and an addition will be finished for the start of the 2009-10 NHL season. By then, the Leafs will have added a 20,000-square-foot atrium to the front of the ACC's west side and completed a host of renovations to the arena itself.

The atrium, which will cost $25-million, will have a 50-by-80-foot video screen on its outside wall, which will overlook a plaza that will be used for parties and other celebrations.
None of these celebrations will include a Stanley Cup victory one.
