A $14 million renovation of Yost Ice Arena was approved by the University of Michigan board of regents at their June 16, 2011 meeting. The project includes replacing seating on the east, south and west sides of the rink, improving accessibility and emergency exits, converting the west side media balcony into a series of loge boxes, adding a new level five on the west side for media, and constructing new corner and stair platforms for additional seating. The project will be paid for out of athletic department revenues.
Regents also approved hiring Rossetti Architects Inc. of Southfield, Mich. to design the project.
