Renderings have been revealed for a new arena at Solar4America Ice in San Jose. The City Planning Commission approved a 200,000 square-foot expansion early this year at 1500 South 10th Street, San Jose. The project proposal includes two recreational ice sheets to the facility, increasing the building’s total ice sheets to six.

Solar4America Ice is owned by the City of San Jose. Sharks Ice LLC, a subsidiary of Sharks Sports & Entertainment, is the property manager and operator.

One of the ice sheets will be located inside a two-story spectator arena with a capacity of 4,200 seats, which will serve as the new home for the San Jose Barracuda. The facility will include locker rooms, training facilities, an in-arena video screen with a 360-degree LED display ring, and executive office space for the Barracuda. The proposed renderings also showcase eight loge boxes, one theater suite, a part deck with a capacity of 46 persons, three bars, seven food concession stations, a press room, and two retail (merchandise) stores.

The suites and facilities are designed in Sharks color. The new arena will not only be home to the San Jose Barracuda. Still, it will also host the San Jose State University Spartans hockey team, the Jr. Sharks hockey program, the Peninsula Figure Skating Club, and the Silicon Valley Curling Club.
