New York to build world’s largest ice rink

New York City has announced plans to build the world’s largest indoor ice facility.

The $275 million plans will see a derelict Bronx armoury turned into a 750,000 square foot ice skating arena, with the hopes of making it a new attraction for the millions of visitors flying into New York each year. The plans are the brainchild of former Deutsche Bank AG asset manager Kevin Parker. Mr. Parker’s company, KNIC Partners LLC, will invest $275 million into transforming the Kingsbridge Armoury in the Bronx into an ice facility which will contain nine regulation-size ice rinks. The first five ice rinks at the new centre are expected to open in late 2018, with the other four set to open later the next year. City officials have predicted that the new attraction will draw in as many as 2 million visitors a year and become a new landmark in the Bronx. “This project is about opportunity, first and foremost, and we are confident the Kingsbridge National Ice Centre will become a source of pride for the Bronx and all of New York City for generations to come,” said Mr. Parker. The new ice facility will also include a 5,000-seat main rink, which will host events such as hockey tournaments, figure and speed skating competitions, and ice shows.  Development of the new attraction is due to begin in late 2014, pending an environmental review. “The construction of the world’s largest indoor ice rink facility will create recreational opportunities for millions of visitors and local residents, and most importantly create hundreds of jobs for the local community,” said Mayor Michael Bloomberg, speaking on the new plans.
