Sacramento Kings unveil photo renderings for planned new arena

Cred: Sacramento Bee

The Sacramento Kings are currently working on building a new arena. While they’re getting pushback from a contingent of concerned citizens, mayor Kevin Johnson and the franchise unveiled plans for the new venue.

Sacramento officials view the arena as an anchor to revitalize the city’s downtown, making it a place to “work-live-play.” Aside from the crown-shaped building, developers plan on constructing a 1.5 million square foot mixed-use facility. The revitalization model is based on similar projects that boosted downtown Los Angeles and Denver.

The below renderings and descriptions are courtesy of the Sacramento Bee. For more information on legal battles over the Kings’ new facility, click here.

The five massive entry doors might be opened for concerts, or before and after Kings games. Event attendees would actually enter through normal-sized doors at ground level.

Ramps and steps along Fifth Street would lead up to the plaza and the facility's main entrance. The building’s facade, below left, would be a distinctive silvery-white series of vertical panels.

The proposed design for the Kings’ downtown arena includes five glass aircraft hangar doors that can fold upward to create a 40-foot tall opening to an outdoor plaza on the north side of the building.

The vertical panels of the building's exterior would bend in and out to accomodate windows, balconies or mechanical features. The panels would be made of etched glass, perforated aluminum or precast Sierra limestone.
