Workers first broke ground on September 7, 2011. Nearly two years, 16,000n seats and $180 million later, the Pinnacle Bank Arena is just weeks away from its first concert.

So we wanted to know, what do you think of it?

"I wish it would fit in a little bit more with the older buildings," James Brightwell, Lincoln, said.

"It's a nice contrast to the conventional architecture that's found down here," Dale Galusha, whose lived in Lincoln for 30 years, said.

The final touches are being put on the arena, like the sign going up on Thursday and, of course, the big red N.

"I'm a big Nebraska basketball fan so I can't wait to get in there," Matt Knobbe, Lincoln, said. "Got season tickets."

The arena is going to forever change the look of Lincoln. And as motorists on I-180 approach downtown, the structure has become a pinnacle of the skyline.

We asked for opinions on Facebook, too.

"Some people will never be happy," Ashley Katz posted.

"It has ruined the look of the town. Now it looks like a spaceship has landed," Paula Washburn Dowd said.

People on the street agree with the spaceship comments.

"It does kinda look like a spaceship and a baked potato. I've heard both of them," Devin Neal, Norfolk, said. "But I think it's kinda cool. It's something unique. It's something different."

But regardless of your opinion, one thing's for sure. And that's the Pinnacle Bank Arena is here to stay.

"I think the Pinnacle Bank Arena is going to be amazing," Eli Barts, Lincoln, said. "Finally Lincoln is getting the attention it deserves and for the capitol, we deserve to have our own quest center. Our own big sports arena."
