A new ice arena, to be the home ground for the ice hockey club “Avtomobilist”, will be constructed in the place of the demolished TV tower by Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company (UMMC). The construction works should start in 2019 and last for 2.5 years.
UMMC presented the first draft concept as a multifunctional complex tor 15,000 visitors that can transform into venues for 11 types of sport or concert hall.
The final concept will be presented at a later time point. The German architects bureau “HPP Architekten” was selected as the main developer of the concept.
