Messier-Led Bronx Ice Center Gets $4 Million Bauer Investment

Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Performance Sports Group Ltd.’s Bauer Hockey will donate $4 million to New York’s Kingsbridge National Ice Center, the world’s largest indoor ice center.

The agreement was disclosed in a statement yesterday from Kingsbridge and Bauer, the world’s leading manufacturer of ice hockey equipment.

The $350 million Kingsbridge complex, which is being developed in the Bronx, the city’s poorest borough, and overseen by former New York Rangers captain Mark Messier, is scheduled for completion in 2017.

The investment from Bauer came six days after Kingsbridge received a $10 million equity investment from the Detroit-based Kresge Foundation, a private group dedicated to helping low-income people through grant-making and philanthropy.

The 750,000-square-foot project includes nine ice rinks, a health and training facility, and a 50,000-square foot community center. Officials last year said they expect the development to create 260 permanent jobs and 890 construction jobs in the Bronx.
