One thing that might be cool is to have some natural lighting. A small retractable roof, or some large frosted glass panels with retractable blinds.
As long as it doesn't affect the load bearing strength of the roof to much. I still think a semitransparent roof like the one proposed for CalgaryNEXT could be a good idea if it's feasible.

Out of curiosity what are some possible sponsors for the name of the arena? will it still be Scotiabank or something else? If we do get a new sponsor I hope to god its better than Little Caesars.

A BREW PUB!!! A restaurant in the main building that uses that huge pavement space as a patio, and the back building with the brewery tanks! Maybe a cute boutique tech office on the 2nd floor.

Great building for it, but 6th Avenue & Macleod Trail is a rough location for patios. Each road is over built at that location (one-way 4 lanes + parking lane on Macleod & one-way 3 lanes + 2 extra wide parking lanes on 6th Avenue), so you could probably take a lane from each for half a block around a future restaurant and have a chance at making it a nice place to visit. Surrounding land uses are tough right now, any pub or restaurant would probably end up focusing on the office crowd as the other blocks are closed CBE headquarters, old folks home, monolithic office tower blocks etc. It is a really cool space though, hopefully they find something useful to do with it!

Yeah, that'd be nice touch!

I always thought that this 60's building would make a wicked restaurant/ brew pub:


With the parking lot being converted into a patio/public space.
