Boston’s TD Garden (formerly the TD Banknorth Garden and the FleetCenter) opened on Sept. 30, 1995 and by the time its 20th anniversary hits, it’ll have undergone “a complete refurbishment” from how it looks today.

After the Bruins season is over – which, judging by the competition in the Eastern Conference, may not conclude until June – the arena will begin a $70 million, privately-funded renovation that is expected to take two years to finish.

“We’re really changing everything from floor to ceiling - no exaggeration,” is how Charlie Jacobs described the project to the Boston Globe.

Among the upgrades are improvements to concourses on levels four and seven to modernize them and provide more room for fans to gather and expand on the food and drink options. The Bruins’ Proshop will also be relocated onto the arena’s second level where it will more than double its retail space. The Legends Club, a private space in the arena, will also receive an upgrade, though Jacobs said those renovations are still in the planning stages.

And finally, the arena is working toward having wireless Internet access available to all fans in the arena, which should be ready in time for the start of the 2014-15 NHL season.

Jacobs said the focus of the renovations this summer will be on the Level 4 concourse, with the balcony level getting most of the attention in the summer of 2015.
