There it is in all its glory. The roof of the arena has become a wall. A veritable waterfall one day of glass and steel pouring towards the river. While disciples will suggest it’s a metaphorical reference to the ever changing forces of the urban environment and cynics might call the swooping steel taking one step closer to a giant toaster or photocopier on the wharf, we’ll simply leave you with the photo evidence.

  1. The new arena with all of its unique features (like the curved window/roof/wall and massive plaza) will be a huge asset along the river. I look forward with great anticipation to its completion.

  2. I just wonder what happens if Louisville comes to it senses and replaces the loud and ugly elevated expressway with a landscaped, at grade, high volume boulevard. Can the arena be modified to better interact with the waterfront?

  3. I’ve been asking myself that question as well, Stu. As a Hoosier who makes regular use of the 2nd Street bridge, I become more disappointed with the arena each day the structure grows larger. Rather than acting as a prominent local gateway into the city, it’s an uninviting blockade that I’m always happy to get past– hardly the type of thing a city wants where it is, much like I-64.
