Oilers Owner Daryl Katz was on Oilers Now with Bob Stauffer on Wednesday and gave a progress update on the construction of Rogers Place.
“The construction, as you can see from our website, is going very well,” Katz said. “I’ve been told that we’re actually a bit ahead of schedule and that’s really great. Relative to the arena and the design itself, I think that if you have been to other arenas throughout North America and even throughout the world it is pretty safe to say that there is no other arena like this anywhere.”
Katz is convinced that there will be “nothing that compares anywhere to what we’re building” when it comes to the new arena and its surrounding district.
“From the outset, it was our vision to design an iconic structure in downtown Edmonton and that’s exactly what we’re building. It is pretty exciting to see it coming out of the ground.”
