ROSSETTI’s relationship with this NHL arena goes back several decades, when a group of youthful real estate investors had a dream of bringing hockey back to Ottawa. ROSSETTI served as the original architect on the home of the Ottawa Senators and has worked with the club ever since on expansions and upgrades.
Considered to be the “best sightlines in hockey,” as noted by Gary Bettman, commissioner of the NHL, the arena bowl was designed to be the steepest configuration in any arena at the time. The three-tier venue has a seating distribution similar to the Roman Colosseum where the middle tier, reserved for premium suite holders, is the ultimate in exclusivity.
Most recently ROSSETTI completed a ROD™ analysis to identify opportunities for premium products. The new 20,000 SF Club Bell offers three upgraded seating formulas, including Victory Suites, Loges and Luxe seats. The new seating areas fill a niche for small and medium-sized businesses that want to entertain smaller groups. Club Bell has recently opened to rave reviews.
