investment of $8 million, the new scoreboard will enhance the
fan experience at Leafs and Raptors games, and Air Canada Centre
events.

Media will also get a tour of Air Canada Centre's west side,
where construction is underway on a $40 million expansion. The
year-long project will expand the home of the Leafs and Raptors
to include a new multi-level concourse, retail areas, and more
concession stands. Construction will be completed in time for
the venue's 10th anniversary season.

Photo and interview opportunities available.

Isn't the expansion on the west side part of their condo as well or am I imagining things? Because whenever I visit my friends' condo down there it faces straight to the ACC and there is a big "Coming Soon: Longo's" sign as well.

i;m sure it is. Today morning actually, as i was walking to union, i noticed that a big part of the west outer wall of the arena has a frame in place for the expansion - and it looked like it was connecting to the condos.

BTW, any mention of real grass at BMO. I gather MLSE is involved in that somehow as well.

If they get real grass at BMO, that would be fantastic. Maybe it would help the idiots at the Rogers Centre realize they need it, too.

It'd be nice, but they can't put real grass in the Rogers Centre because of the way they switch the field from baseball to football and the fact there's no drainage in the floor. That Fieldturf is starting to look bad.

Give the Raps 10 of the 40 million so we can get Ben Gordon..
