(As of Mar.7.14)
Access through Gate 8: Due to construction at Gate 8, please consider using Gate 2 on the north side of Rogers Arena for access to upper bowl seating. Gate 8 on Georgia Street viaduct will continue to see a reduction in access space as construction on the Aquilini Centre West at Rogers Arena continues. We encourage all fans in the upper bowl to utilize Gate 2 off the Dunsmuir Street viaduct when entering Rogers Arena.
Access through Gate 7: With the start of excavation on the South Tower, access to Rogers Arena across the south plaza will no longer be available until the completion of the tower. Fans entering Gate 7 from the direction of Yaletown/Pacific Boulevard will be directed to the sidewalk on the south side of Pacific Boulevard, up to the intersection at Abbott Street; where traffic authority will assist in crossing Pacific Boulevard. Entry up to Gate 7 will be via the outside stairs located beside the current Team Store.
Canucks fans and concert-goers can look forward to more comfortable and diverse experiences in the future while attending events at Rogers Arena. The first of three towers being constructed around the home rink of the Vancouver Canucks will be open to the public in June.
The first tower, Aquilini Centre West, provides new amenities and experiences to Canucks and concert fans, offering expanded concourse space on levels 100 and 300, providing more room to mingle and enjoy the variety of fresh food vendors. Fans can also enjoy a beer or cocktail at the new upscale bar located on the upper concourse.
Level 200 of Aquilini Centre West provides much needed additional men’s and women’s washroom facilities for all guests, increasing the washrooms in Rogers Arena by 25%, which has substantially reduced wait times.
The adjoining West Tower expanded concourse space for level 100 and 300 is currently operational for the 2014.15 NHL season, while the remaining office and residential suites of the 26-story building will be completed in June.
The second 31-story South Tower will not be attached to Rogers Arena, but will be in close proximity on the South Plaza. Aquilini Centre South will include five levels of underground parking, with over 250 residential rental units in addition to fitness and multipurpose facilities. Work commenced on the tower in February of 2014.
The third 28-story East Tower, which will be located above the current Canucks Team Store, will be another mixed-use high rise with both residential rental apartments and office suites. Canucks Sports & Entertainment is excited to announce as part of the new East Tower construction, the current Canucks Team Store will be relocated to a new larger location facing onto Abbott Street. The new team store will be two levels and will carry the largest assortment of Canucks merchandise. It will have several new shopping experiences along with new upscale brands. This new location will have a very inviting façade, thrilling our fans and creating a true shopping destination.
