The Madison Square Garden Company (NYSE: MSG) and Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) recently broke ground on the MSG Sphere. As the name implies, the new event venue will resemble the sphere-shaped structure of a planetarium, albeit with some radical exceptions, and it promises to catapult live event technology into the 21st century. Technology and real estate stock investors, take note: The Garden's stock is worth keeping an eye on this year.
What is it?

The MSG Sphere will be a 360-foot tall by 500-foot diameter structure, good for over 18,000 seats on the floor. Sounds innocuous enough, except that over the floor will be a 170,000-square foot ultra-high-definition LED display, which MSG claims will be the largest in the world. Embedded in the display will be thousands of ultra-directional speakers that will ensure audio quality is the same in the back row as it is in the front.
MSG promises that attendees will have all five of their senses engaged at events -- ranging from special projects designed by MSG itself to musical acts to business presentations. As for the exterior, it's over-the-top, too. The Sphere will be wrapped in 190,000 linear feet of programmable display, which the company says will come with an easy-to-use toolkit to custom-design marketing campaigns.
