It's at South Lander St., which would be a couple blocks south of the arena. BTW, good to see Aaron Levine get the Port on record like this.

Here is the Port's wish list for transportation improvements...

http://www.king5.com/news/arena/Port...159934655.html

Chris Daniels with this story once again, for those of you who want to see what the Port wants without having to click on the link (this is from the story):

Quote:
-- Allow trucks to access I-90 through restricted areas

-- Truck only routes (e.g., East Marginal Way, Colorado/Massachusetts Streets)

-- Create a new roadway to replace the function of Occidental Avenue S. connecting between S. Holgate Street & Edgar Martinez Drive.

-- Increase capacity on 1st Avenue S.

-- Fund additional transit service

-- Improve walking route to the Link Light Rail station

-- Lander Street grade separation

-- New pedestrian bridge
More than just the Lander grade separation.

Hansen Group has plans to make Key Arena a viable interim option for an NHL team. This is the most specific info I have seen to date on Key improvements for the NHL. This thing is steaming ahead with a vote likely in August. Good news for Seattle NHL fans.

http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattlespo...do-arena-plan/

Refinish of team and official locker rooms and other key BOH (back of house) areas.
Reconfiguration of event level space to create NHL and NBA team suites, with modern amenities and infrastructure.
Upgrade data and audio/visual backbones to bring the building to more modern standards.
Add a semi-permanent event level club.
Refinish a portion of lower bowl seats.
Renovate three lower level concessions concourses.
Remodel existing Champions Club.
Reconfigure sports lighting to NHL standards.
Add camera locations consistent with modern league standards.
Create NHL replay review room.
Refurbish ice making equipment.
Refurbish retractable seating sections.

POS (point of sale, or checking stands) fixed-position upgrades.
Refurbish fixed kitchen equipment.
Upgrade fixed bowl signage program.
Required life safety improvements

Yea thats the most anyone can do to the key given its small footprint. Perhaps with the refurbish retractable seating sections would maybe increase seating capacity for hockey.

This should also put to rest anyone doubting that the NHL isn't important to Hansen.

I don't want to be Negative Nancy (or an ass if you prefer) and I wish you guys get the facility and the team as well. But all those things makes a lot of stuff to do to make an old arena (don't get me wrong Colisée Pepsi in Québec is old aswell) viable for NHL for what...5 years at most. Aren't the factors of cost, time and time it will be used a bit off. I mean someone is gonna put $100M into those renovations to use the arena for 2-3 years (without any clue that the team will move) until the new one is built.

I'm just asking if you guy really think that is viable. Now if you tell me there is no plan and only thing that can be done is to renovate Key Arena, then it's another story.

Why would they want TWO NHL teams playing in the same arena?

Hansen and his group have offered to fund the upgrades to make the Key a viable interim facility for the NHL and NBA so that part is covered. In addition, they have also expressed a desire to operate the Key post new Arena so they would be under the same management and not compete with one another but rather work together. They have 3 working plans under consideration.

And none of that will be close to $100MM - they Key underwent a major overhaul in the mid-90's so it doesn't need to be completely reworked and the changes outlined above have been quoted in the press as costing $5MM with long term solutions costing more but at this point we are only talking about helping the Key become a viable interim building.

Hansen plans to operate both arenas.

The new arena construction won't begin until a NBA team is acquired thus will play in the Key until arena is done or the group that is going to own the NHL team acquires a team and provides money into the new arena.

That's good. I guess $100MM was overboard but that list seems to be a lot to me. Especially adding seating and luxury boxes seems like an architectural challenge. I would question the $5M figure because in Quebec just to ''refurbish'' our ice making equipment it's between $6 and $7M.

Cause to most people, Seattle does not have the pieces together just yet to be considered a contender. No owners, no confirmed date for the building of a new arena, Key arena just wont work short term the NHL as told many people. Just because of that. If the Coyotes move its to Quebec City, we all know that.

The only people that matter are the NHL and they've already said that they're pretty much on par to them...at least publicly. The Key Arena thing is false and if the Coyotes move, either place can get them at this point. You don't need to purposely mislead people to further your agenda and bias on the matter.
