About Little Caesars and Vector Foiltec’s scope

The heart of Detroit is undergoing a dramatic change as a 50-block revitalisation project, named The District Detroit, sees new business, event, and leisure spaces developed that will connect the Downtown and Midtown areas of the city. Central to this development is Little Caesars Arena.

Key to the deconstructed arena concept is the Via; the covered concourse area, between the arena and adjacent retail and office spaces on the eastern and southern sides of the venue. It is covered with Vector Foiltec’s Texlon® ETFE system. A strong, lightweight and, importantly, transparent system which is also incredibly durable, with installations designed to last over 50 years. The Via visitors now feel like it is outdoors.  This gives Detroiters a space in the winter that’s like being outside. With a lot of our projects, the goal is to create a space that feels as though there isn’t a roof.
