  1. Fifth Third Arena Renovation

    Comments Off on Fifth Third Arena Renovation

    The renovation and expansion of the 1989 multi-purpose Myrl H. Shoemaker / Fifth-Third Arena transforms a pragmatic gymnasium box into a state-of-the-art NCAA Division I basketball and volleyball performance venue capable of also hosting commencement, job fairs and concerts. Existing utilitarian retractable and precast seating that is not oriented towards action on the event floor, is reconfigured to an arena configuration, optimizing seating options and revenue generation. New, open main and upper concourse levels double the quantity and provides access to amenities, such as premium clubs, loge boxes, suites and concessions.
