PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh, PA

PPG Paints Arena (formerly Consol Energy Center) is a multi-purpose indoor arena in the Uptown area of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Construction was completed on August 1, 2010, and opened in time for the 2010–11 NHL season. The arena replaced the Penguins' former arena, Mellon Arena (currently known as Civic Arena), which was completed in 1961. A ceremonial ground-breaking was held on August 14, 2008. The arena is the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold-certified arena in both the NHL and AFL. As soon as the center opened it was lauded as one of the best arenas in the world, winning both for "Best New Major Concert Venue" and the best NHL arena for 2010–11. The arena is named for Consol Energy, which purchased the naming rights in December 2008.
