Edmontonians can count the remaining days on their fingers as January 16 approaches. Without doubt, a curious audience will be lining up that morning for a special internal viewing of a massive construction project as it races towards completion in the fall. The city is abuzz with talk of a brand new arena that will predictably become legendary, changing downtown Edmonton dramatically. Rogers Arena, surpassing its function as a new home for the city's well-loved Oilers, is designed to impress. The arena, described by city representatives as "stunning", replete with 18,500 seats, will outshine the smaller Rexall Place that has been in the city spotlight for decades.
