PPL Center hosts hockey, concerts, shows, and other community events. The arena includes fixed seating for approximately 8,500 patrons with 1,100 club seats, 34 suites, kid’s zone, team fitness spaces, broadcast studios, and associated back-of-house areas. The combination of constructing a specialized ice hockey arena landlocked between a new hotel, office center and parking structure in an urban environment presented logistical challenges throughout construction. Work included preservation and underpinning of the Dime Savings Bank building which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and shoring another building.
