Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is asking for public feedback on two proposals to renovate Key Arena in the hopes of bringing NBA and NHL teams to the city.

Both proposals are online and the city is accepting public comment from the community here. City staff will host a public open house May 11 from 5-8 p.m. at KEXP, right around the corner from Key Arena. The event is an opportunity for residents to ask questions about both proposals.
Last week, Murray met with representatives from Oak View Group and Seattle Partners — two organizations vying for the renovation project.
“Seattle is in a unique position where multiple developers want to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on a world-class arena in our city,” Mayor Murray said in a statement. “Last week, I had an initial review of the proposals to redevelop the Seattle Center Arena. I am enthusiastic about both proposals. I look forward to digging into the details with my staff, the Arena Community Advisory Panel, and ultimately negotiating the best deal to bring the NBA and the NHL to Seattle.”
