Photos: Take a look at the three arena options

 

City administrators presented three downtown arena options to Edmonton city council on Jan. 23, 2012. Option A features a Wintergarden with an enclosed pedway and an underground parkade. Option B has an open-air walkway and above-ground parking. Option C eliminates the Wintergarden and has no pedestrian ramp over 104th Avenue. Scroll through the photos for each option.
