Discussion of a proposed arena project connected to Mayo Civic Center will continue Tuesday.

The Mayo Civic Center Commission will hear a presentation from London-based PricewaterhouseCoopers regarding an analysis of a proposed sport and entertainment arena to replace Taylor Arena.

The new study was funded by the Mayo Clinic and led by the Rochester Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The commission meets at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Mayo Civic Center office conference room, 30 Civic Center Drive SE.

Nearly two years ago, the Rochester City Council reviewed a RCVB-funded feasibility study on the proposed project. Conducted by Hammes Co., the study resulted in several potential designs, ranging in size from 4,000 to 6,200 seats with price tags of $55 million to $75 million.

The 31-year-old Taylor Arena offers space for 5,200 seats as a concert venue, with limited sports options.

The 2015 study was spurred by a call from the U.S. Hockey League, which was looking for a potential site for a new franchise. While the report indicated about 32 events would be connected to the USHL each year, if an agreement was struck, it estimated the venue could attract 116 events each year, including larger music performances and family-oriented entertainment.

At the time, the city council indicated more study was needed, which spurred the new effort.

"This study is much broader about the arena itself," said RCVB Executive Director Brad Jones, who noted the Hammes study focused more on USHL needs.

The PricewaterhouseCooper analysis is expected to include:

• The potential economic and fiscal impacts on both Rochester and state economies generated by incremental activity resulting from a new arena.

• The estimated direct spending resulting from the proposed arena.

• The estimated indirect spending and induced effects of the "ripple" effect of a new arena.

• Estimated costs of construction and potential development partnerships.

• Estimated annual event activity and revenues at a new arena.

• Potential impacts related to quality-of-life for residents, community brand, ancillary real estate development and more.
