They had actually started construction about a month before the official groundbreaking ceremony, but yet, technically that's what it is. Right now, you can see the outline of the ice surface and they've started building what will be the lower seating bowl, main concourse and service areas. Steel is supposed to start going up at the beginning of the new year.

The Arena has a new name. Say hello to Consol Energy Arena.

Mellon Arena was called the igloo. Do we call this "The Coal Mine?"

This was already posted in the Pens Tidbits thread, and as I said there, I'm very surprised that Consol Energy won it. I had heard that UPMC was the front-runner for the longest time, and if they beat them out, then they must have put up some serious cash.

As for the nickname, The CEC will probably what it'll be, but "The Coal Mine"...hmmm, I dunno. The locals might like it, though.
