The owner of the Rochester Razorsharks basketball team says he plans to buy the Dome Arena in Henrietta. Dr. Sev Hrywnak tells WHAM News he is currently in the 'due diligence' phase of negotiations, where engineers are checking out the facility for him.
It was revealed this past summer that the Monroe County Fair Association decided it wanted to sell that facility, and it was talking with several parties.
Right now the Razorsharks play at the Blue Cross Arena, but Hrywnak tells us that situation is just not financially viable for him anymore. If this sale goes through, He would like to see the Dome Arena be used by sports like indoor pro lacrosse and soccer and also he would like to have high school teams play there. Hrywnak is also looking at the possibility of putting in an ice rink there.
He says the venue might be able to hold 6,000 or 7,000 seats, and he would like to build some suites as well. Hrywnak is hoping the deal can close in the next couple of months.
