The Detroit Red Wings and the District Detroit have produced a video that highlights construction progress on the new downtown arena.

Go HERE to see the video.

The arena is scheduled to open in time for the Red Wings’ 2017-18 season. It does not yet have a name, but Christopher Ilitch, president of Ilitch Holdings, said Thursday the name will be announced “soon.”

Ilitch said: “The bowl is taking shape as we speak. By the fall, the structure will have a roof. … The pace of the work has been nothings short of amazing, 12 hours a day and six days a week. And it’s being done by workers and companies from our community.”
