The arena will be 160m in length, 130m wide and 35m tall with a gross volume of around 500,000 cubic metres. Total area of the arena will be around 60,000 square metres. It will feature a 1,800 square metre LED wall on the outside facade, which will transform the front into a large video screen. The arena will cost around €150 million to construct.
The arena's construction has been controversial because its planning involves removing a segment of the nearby East Side Gallery. Additionally it has been criticized for creating competition to similar locations in Berlin, which are not used to capacity.
