1stBank Center In Broomfield, Colorado To Be Torn Down

It's always crazy to me how many multi-million dollar buildings can just be destroyed and torn down at the drop of a hat. It's always seemed so wasteful to me. The latest example of waste is the impending demolition of the 1stBank Center in Broomfield Colorado. We told you here back in May that the popular mid-size arena in Broomfield would be closing and torn down.

Why Did The 1stBank Center Close?

The Broomfield Urban Renewal Authority's Board of Directors said the reason for the demolition of the arena was that it never made a profit. Without a sports team, like the Colorado Eagles, consistently bringing in crowds of people, it's hard to make a profit with a building that costs as much as that one to run. The land will likely be re-developed into housing like the current area that surrounds the 1stBank Center. Here's a look inside during its final event
