Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 285: Sacramento's New Downtown Arena Project

Officially known as the Sacramento Entertainment and Sports Complex (ESC), the new downtown arena is currently under construction, replacing part of what used to be the eastern portion of the Westfield shopping mall. In theory, the new venue's grand opening will be in October 2016 (there's a countdown clock on the web site!).

When Mr. E and I couldn't ice skate last week, we spent a few moments overlooking the enormous construction site from the corner of 5th and L Streets.

Mr. E wondered if there might be a live construction camera feed for the development, similar to the construction cam that had allowed me to follow the progress of the new high school in my hometown. Sure enough, I found links to two camera views, one from the official ESC site, and the other through the local CBS station.

I really hope the final development lives up to its potential...

At least the new arena will be in the central city rather than way out in the middle of nowhere in Natomas!
