Construction of the CONSOL Energy Center was completed on August 1, 2010, and opened in time for the 2010-2011 NHL season. Designed by Populus, formerly HOK Sport, the ICON Venue group oversaw the building of the arena. The 735,000 square-foot CONSOL Energy Center features a four-sided scoreboard, 66 suites, 32 loge boxes, and a view of the famous Golden Triangle visible from the upper concourse. The arena will host hockey games, basketball games, concerts and other events.
Achieving LEED Gold certification, CONSOL Energy Center became the first NHL arena to reach that standard of sustainability. “Pursuing environmental sustainable development throughout Montel, we are very proud to be associated with this significant achievement by the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Sports & Exhibition Authority.
