Based on this article, the Rock's surroundings are continuing to strive and build up, and Triangle Park may finally be completed in coming years
In the more immediate future, fans can look forward to continued improvements in and around the Prudential Center, now in its third year. Development stalled during the economic downturn, but may be finally turning a corner.
Work is underway on a “burger and brew” eatery next to the Brick City Coffee Co., which opened last season. Two sports bars are planned for Edison Place across from the arena box office, and are expected to open during the upcoming season. Designs have been submitted for Triangle Park, which will be located across from the front of the arena on Mulberry Street. The park’s groundbreaking could happen as early as this fall.
Construction will begin on a Courtyard by Marriott on the corner of Broad and Lafayette streets following a groundbreaking targeted for Sept. 1.
Pro tip: Keep your hands wedged in your pockets at all times, so the pickpockets can't get your wallet. Also, walk around backwards and turn around often so you can always see if anyone is following you.
