Plans to revitalize the downtown area of Edmonton with a new entertainment arena are beginning to take shape.

With the city’s population increasing at a vibrant pace, billionaire Daryl Katz’s new arena will be aiming for more than 2 million visitors each year and will help to bring more visitors to the downtown centre to the entertainment facilities but also to the wider retail areas.

The arena is set to open in 2016.
