This arena concept was designed specifically for the NHL Pittsburgh Penguins, but flexible enough for other uses. The facility integrates with the downtown cityscape, creating stunning views of the city and skyline.
The design features local materials, chosen to be distinct from the adjacent church, rather than to diminish the historical building. Integral to the overall design was the premise that the arena will assist in the ongoing revitalization efforts of the downtown Pittsburgh area.
CONSOL Energy Center was named the Best New Major Concert Venue at the 22nd annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards.
