City Center | Dual Ice Arena - 500 Seats - Concerts, Retail and Outdoor Venue

Community Center Design

Passaic Community Center  |
3,500 Seat Arena with Dual NHL Ice
Retail and Community Park


The Milberger Architectural Group teamed with Dewitt-Tisshman Architects to create schematics for a Community Center for Passaic, New Jersey.  Eric Milberger combined his expertise for Arena and Community Spaces with the Retail experience of Peter Dewitt.  The 215,00 sf complex would have been the Hockey and Arena venue for the area.

Not only Ice skating events but community “raves”, carnival, wrestling, rodeo and concert events would happen year around.  The addition of an outdoor venue, which complimented the community spirit, would have kept things lively on a daily basis.
