According to The New York Post, Madison Square Garden will be rebuilt on its current location, which will cost over $500 million dollars. The plan is to keep the exterior walls, as well as the ceiling (which will also get a makeover), while this summer they will tear out and rebuild the lower level of the arena. This will be done in time for the 2011-2012 Knicks and Rangers season. They will rebuild the upper half the next year.
Bloomberg News also has reported on this, stating that Turner Construction Company, the same company that built the $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium, will be in charge of the renovations. The following renovations have been planned:
* 50 percent more bathrooms
* Concourse widths that are doubled and tripled
* Larger seats
* Interactive kiosks
* Improved upper-bowl sight lines
* New food options
* A party deck and two bridges that run the length of the arena with overhead views of the events
Madison Square Garden's website has a fact sheet that you can download, regarding the upcoming renovations coming to the arena.
