Rogers Place, Edmonton’s new downtown arena, will become the centre of a new entertainment district in the heart of Alberta’s capital city and the new home of the Edmonton Oilers. The design will integrate the $480-million arena with an adjacent $7-million light-rail transit station and a $15-million outdoor pedway that provides event space and a pedestrian connection with adjacent development. Plans also include a $21-million, 1,000-seat community rink attached to the arena, an overpass, and a large $53-million Winter Garden providing a climate-controlled event venue for public use.

Work on Rogers Place began on March 3, 2014. The first phase, excavation and foundation work, was completed in 2014. The build entered the second phase in fall 2014, which includes erecting the steel and concrete structure. The entire build is expected to take 2.5 years, with the arena opening in fall 2016.
