Uniondale, NY

Show Project Details

Developer Bruce Ratner won the approval to provide the Nassau Coliseum with a head-to-toe makeover. The utilitarian and increasingly outdated 41-year-old Coliseum, in Uniondale, N.Y, will have a sinuous steel latticework shell; an indoor arena downsized to a more snug 13,000 seats, from 18,000; and new concourses and restrooms. An amphitheater that can be converted into an ice rink is planned, as are a movie house, a bowling alley and restaurants. Cameron Engineering is designing the M/E/P/FP systems associated with the renovation of existing space and the build-out of designated areas.
