Reports out of Calgary state the Flames are proposing an arena/stadium/fieldhouse complex on the West Village land previously rumoured to be the new sports facility site. This “confirmation” of the site and scope of the mega-complex has led to talk about site remediation and speculation on the project.
Something should be announced in the next month or so, but I expect 2 years before shovels are in the ground and 5 years construction if the project moves forward for a minimum of 7 years before the facilities are ready based on the current climate, and that could quickly turn to 10 years or more depending on the economy.
