The Barclays Center bid has promised a $229 million project designed by SHoP Architects that sheathes the arena in a nest of glass and steel, looking like a hypertrophied Barclays Center. The remade arena would host 309 events a year, including boxing matches, college hoops, even six games by the Islanders hockey team, which are poised to move to the Barclays Center as soon as the 2013-2014 hockey season. Concerts will be led by the Barclays partners in the bid, Live Nation and Jay Z's Roc Nation.
Local developer Edward Blumenfeld, who was one of the four original bidders for the arena, will help develop a number of restaurant and retail outlets around the arena, which will be co-managed by Barclays and Legends Hospitality, which runs concessions at Yankee Stadium, Cowboy Stadium and the under-construction observation deck at the World Trade Center.
