    Thank you! Definitely interested to know how the arena was progressing! I suppose with 2021 entry date there really is no need to rush.

    I went ahead and got this thread sticky'd so it'll be more easy accessible. Let's try to keep this specifically about the status of the arena as construction goes on.

    Pictures taken of the work at Key arena. They are still putting up noise barriers and the demoing won't begin until after the 99 work is done and tunnel is open due to too much traffic due to the highway 99 closure for the next 3 weeks.

    Demoing inside the arena has begun and more of the sound barrier goes up. Night time demoing can not begin until the entire sound barrier is up.

    Oak View takes the NHL Seattle blog (John Barr, I believe, correct Tommy?) on a tour of the interior demolition currently ongoing.

    I think NHL Seattle blog is separate from NHL to Seattle. Btw that video wasn't originally working but i sent a quick facebook message to OVGSeattle and they got it fixed quickly.

    I'm really interested to see what they do with the place. Lots of old stuff to work around and the configuration just seems weird when it comes to elevation over the ice.

    I still hate the idea of not having a center hung scoreboard/jumbotron. I'm one of those idiots that always tries to find the people on the jumbotron and not seeing whole parts of the arena obscured by the closer scoreboard isn't optimal.

    I heard they are not renovating the exterior or doing little renovations to it. Is this true?

    The exterior work is just outside the arena. The roof is historic landmark and thus won't be touched.
