Snyder Proposes Arena, Convention Center to Complement Mall Plans

A developer has proposed building an 8,000-seat sports and entertainment arena
on one of two sites he owns near the Maine Turnpike in Portland and Westbrook.
Jason Snyder wants to build the arena in conjunction with his proposed
Stroudwater Place, a $300 million, 1.6 million-square-foot retail and commercial
development in Westbrook. He has also proposed to convert the Cumberland County
Civic Center in Portland into a convention center, and asked the Portland
Pirates to be the flagship tenant of the new arena.
