A new ice sport arena in Yekaterinburg, 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 of the arena as a multifunctional complex tor 15 thousand visitors that can transform within one day into a venue for 11 types of sport or into a 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.
