LLOYD CENTER TO CONDUCT GRAND REOPENING OF ICE RINK
PORTLAND, Ore., 2016-Nov-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — Lloyd Center is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony to re-open the newly remodeled Lloyd Center Ice.
Lloyd Center Ice has been under construction for approximately one year, and is almost ready to be unveiled to Portland! This famous ice rink has been reconfigured and upgraded as part of Lloyd Center’s comprehensive renovation program. It is now a more traditional oval design and has been shifted to the east, becoming the central attraction of the newly revamped Center Court. Lloyd Center Ice is visible from all three levels of the shopping center where balconies overlook from three concentric oval cut-outs in the floor plan. The existing chalet has been reworked, too. The original ice-making equipment related to the rink dates back to the opening of the mall and has been upgraded to new, energy-efficient technology for optimal efficiency.
The rink will officially open to the public on November 17, 2016, just in time for the holidays. In celebration of this momentous occasion, Lloyd Center will host an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:00 am. Lloyd Center management has also arranged for a 50-foot Christmas tree to be placed in the middle of the ice rink for the holiday season, as well as magical indoor snowfalls to make the skating experience truly memorable.
“We are excited to celebrate this moment with Portland,” states Robert Dye, general manager of Lloyd Center. A tremendous amount of work has been dedicated to restoring this classical element of Lloyd Center’s history. It is truly Lloyd Center’s centerpiece!”
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will showcase a few performances as well as light refreshments. It is open to the general public.
