    I haven't seen plans of what the finished arena is supposed to look like. From those of you that are following, is it going to have a 21st century splash on the exterior, or was there consideration to giving some blend to the area? That's one thing where I can give credit to CU: they really had a master plan and new additions/construction on campus share similar stone exteriors...

    The tracks are being moved when the new Amtrak station opens.

    Okay. Great. Wonderful. So what in the name of HuskerMax is a Pinnacle Bank Arena? What's it for? Why do otherwise intelligent commentators on this board seem to be happy about this?

    Are you sure it isn't the Barnacle Prank Arena?

    Other than farming, nothing screams Nebraska to me more than those mile-long Union Pacific coal trains, hauling fossil fuels out of Wyoming's Powder River Basin back east. Wyoming produces 40% of the coal in the United States, and nearly all of it comes streaking back across the plains of my favorite state.

    Unfortunately, those tracks there belong to Burlington Northern.

    LOL, I assume you're joking. Although I do know it's pretty sleepy out there on the Oregon Coast. But just in case you aren't joking. Pinnacle Bank bought the naming rights for the new city arena where UNL mens and womens hoops will play.

    Thanks, Impaler. As usual, the most important piece of info was missing. This being the football board must have had me confused. Basketball??? Yuck. I will definately go back to sleep.

    Why is it abbreviated PNB when it's named for Pinnacle Bank?

    Shouldn't it be PB or PBA?

    Nice article located here about the accompanying develpment around the arena. This is gonna be really nice IMO.

    The 16,000-seat Pinnacle Bank Arena anchors the West Haymarket development with its Husker men’s and women’s basketball games and world-class performers. You already knew that.But project partners say the area just south of the arena will offer Lincoln’s (and perhaps the Midwest’s) new night out, with an outdoor plaza, shops, restaurants, a hotel and residences.
    The U-shaped Yard will host a variety of trendsetting shopping boutiques and upscale dining experiences, says WRK Real Estate, the Lincoln company which is currently leasing space in the new entertainment district. The development will host tailgating, movies, festivals and food by Nebraska businesses.


    Developers say the centerpiece of the 80-by-160-foot development will be a sort of public plaza surrounded on three sides by retail and restaurants, including an indoor market. WRK representatives told the Lincoln Journal Star that the plaza will contain a large digital display canvas called The Cube (still in the design stage) and a proposed 50-by-100-foot ice skating rink that will be free for the public.
    And a couple of renderings.
