Pa. board votes to demolish former Mellon Arena

The former home of the Pittsburgh Penguins will be demolished.

The Pittsburgh-Allegheny County Sports and Exhibition Authority voted Thursday to demolish the building formerly known as Mellon Arena and nicknamed the "igloo" because of its distinct domed shape.

The Penguins have moved to the new Consol Energy Center and control the development rights to the 28 acres where their former home and its parking lots are located.

The Penguins have said they favored tearing down the arena and building a mixed use development to bolster the neighboring Hill District. Residents of that historically black neighborhood favor that plan, noting thousands of black families were uprooted when their homes were bulldozed to make room for the arena that opened in 1961.

Still, others wanted to see the arena converted into a park, skating rink and hotel for tourists.
