If we assume that the lifespan of facilities could be considered about similar, and that the dome has taken over partial duties of Hemisfair Arena (high school graduations, some concerts, headstart registration,) we can say that without any major renovations to the place, we can expect it to be done/useless in the next 6-9 years; that'll put the dome at 20-25 years old in 2013 and 2018 respectively. I just hope that better land use is addressed before anything goes up or down at the site of the dome.
Imagine the Commerce/Convention connector bridge actually being a connector to...Hemisfair Park East.

Imagine the east, north, and south sides of the park lined with mid-rises around a central green space. Imagine!!!
