SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- The Sacramento Kings have released the first completed renderings of a downtown arena they hope to open for the start of the 2016-17 season.
The renderings released Tuesday came after six months of workshops, open houses, town halls and focus groups. The Kings said a survey soliciting advice from the public yielded more than 20,000 responses.
The renderings show a grand atrium entrance with a 50-by-150-foot window that looks into the arena bowl from the street. There's a massive scoreboard. The team said the arena, designed by AECOM, will feature the environmental and technological innovation of the region.
The city has approved paying $258 million of the project's estimated $448 million cost. The Kings hope to break ground on the arena this summer.
