Mile One CentreHome of the IceCaps
Mile One Centre is the home of the St. John’s IceCaps. Its name comes from its location at the beginning of the TransCanada Highway.
The 6,287 seat multi-purpose facility has an adjacent convention centre and is located in downtown St. John’s. The project includes a total of 35 private boxes and utilizes retractable lower seating to maximize trade show capacity at the event floor level. The site slopes a total of 18 metres, with the lowest elevation at the front of the building. The designers intentionally minimized the height of the building with a sloping curved roof and buried it into the hill to allow for views to the harbour from the adjacent residential area at the upper end of the site.
