PPG Paints Arena (formerly known as CONSOL Energy Center), is a multi-purpose indoor arena in the Uptown area of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The arena is home to both the Pittsburgh Penguins, the city's National Hockey League (NHL) franchise, as well as the Arena Football League's Pittsburgh Power, which began play in 2011. Construction was completed on August 1, 2010, and opened in time for the 2010–11 NHL season. The arena replaced the Penguins' former arena, Mellon Arena (currently known as Civic Arena), which was completed in 1961. A ceremonial ground-breaking was held on August 14, 2008. The arena is the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold-certified arena in both the NHL and AFL. As soon as the center opened in 2010 it was lauded as one of the best arenas in the world, winning both "Best New Major Concert Venue" in the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards and "Best NHL Arena" in the Sports Business Journal reader poll. The arena is named for Consol Energy, which purchased the naming rights in December 2008.
