By Robert Allen – Newsday Staff WriterNew York Rangers’ arena renovation is in the works.
As the Rangers’ owner, Joe Lacob and team owner, Scott Malkin, continue to explore options for renovating their Nassau Coliseum, the team has partnered with a renowned architect and consultant to create a new, state-of-the-art arena that will house all of the team’s professional hockey operations.
The $1.9 billion project will also include a state-wide fiber optic network that will connect the team to fans across the Northeast and beyond.
The team’s first major arena renovation project, a $4 billion renovation of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, was completed in 2016.
That project, which included a state of the art video board, an updated seating plan and new scoreboard, has been completed, according to a team source.
The new arena will be the centerpiece of the Rangers arena renovations and will include a new $1 billion video board.
It will also house the new arena’s hockey operations center, which will include an interactive video board for fans.
The video board will allow fans to engage with the game.
The new video board has been designed for the digital age and will allow for an increased level of interactive interaction, team officials said.
The goal is to make the arena a focal point of the arena experience and to provide fans with a greater sense of security, said a team official.
The game will also be streamed live through the new video boards.
The $1,9 billion video scoreboard is a major piece of the $5.7 billion arena renovation that will also incorporate a $1-billion fiber optic system that will provide the Rangers with greater connectivity to the Northeast.
The system will also connect the new and renovated arena to the city of Boston.
The cost of the new system is $832 million.
The goal is that fans will have access to the team and all of their games and events.
The project will include upgrades to the arena’s scoreboard and video board as well as new seating for the team, team president Glen Sather said.
Fans will be able to watch the team play on the new scoreboard and see replays of every game through a new live video board that will allow them to see where the puck was when it landed in the net.
Fans will also have a chance to get in on the action with interactive interactive replays on the scoreboard.
The arena renovation will be completed within three years, said Sather.
The project is expected to be completed in 2020 and begin construction in 2021, according a team insider.
