$100M reno planned for Montreal Bell Centre
Montreal’s Bell Centre is about to undergo a three-year, $100 million rehabilitation project.
Montreal Canadien principal owner Geoff Molson made the announcement Wednesday morning.
Included in the renovation plans are: redesigned main building glasswork entranceway, new restaurants, new video screens, wider corridors, new concession stands, renovated lounges and increased WiFi access inside the building.
Outside the building, there are plans for Montreal Canadiens Avenue to become a pedestrian-only street.
The work is being planned so as not to interfere with any activities that normally take place at the arena, Molson said.
The renovation is over and above the 20-year old arena’s 21,000 seats being replaced. The building will soon be surrounded by two new condominium towers.
