Report from Crains Detroit Business. Ground could be opened by year end. Arena could take 20-22 months to build (so another 2-3 seasons in the Joe?). What seems to be holding things up is environmental -- run off (snow, rain) from arena is greater than other buildings. Land owned by Illitches at all potential sites (keeping cost down). "Box" (arena) cost ~$300mm; the other $310mm dedicated to project is earmarked for other infrastructure (office, restaurants) in area to make it an entertainment district.
