MSG announces new upper-bowl Knicks / Rangers suites - $600k per year lease required

The overhaul at MSG continues. Coming soon: Upper-Bowl Suites for just $600,000. Rich Calder reports:

The 365-square-foot suites when completed in the fall will be among the last pieces of the Garden’s third and final phase of its $1 billion top-to-bottom transformation project.

Besides being slightly closer to the court area, the suites offer superior amenities to existing upper-bowl suites, which will be removed to pave the way for a lounge area to be called the Budweiser Fan Deck.

The new suites will each come with 12 private seats to all Garden events, plus an opportunity to purchase up to five additional tickets.

“One of our goals with the newly transformed Madison Square Garden is to present premium hospitality offerings, at every level, for companies who want an unmatched experience for entertaining or doing business,” Dave Howard, president of MSG Sports, told the Post.

“The new Signature Suites will feature first-class amenities, food offerings from some of New York’s best chefs, access to exclusive gatherings with Garden legends and center-stage views for every exciting event at The World’s Most Famous Arena.

“And with all of our other suites and clubs virtually sold out, the Signature Suites are the last way for a company to gain access to the ultimate premium entertainment experience to help drive business in the center of Manhattan.”

Makes the 300 square foot suite in The Vault at Barclays Center for $550,000 with no view of the action seem down right overpriced.

Sources indicate the building transformation's ending process will probably go smoother than the first two because of the lack of a need to move many banners out of the way.
