Philips Arena Renovation Case Study
Legends and HJ Russell JV are currently engaged by the Atlanta Hawks to provide project management services for the $192.5 million renovation and transformation of Philips Arena. The project, which is to be completed in three phases prior to the 2018-19 NBA season, will consist of the creation of a 360 degree concourse in the upper level, the redevelopment of the existing six-level luxury suites, a 250-seat conference room and improved sight-lines through the removal of various walls throughout the arena. Technology also plays a huge part in the renovation, bringing forth multiple technological improvements throughout the arena including a new center-hung scoreboard and a one-of-a-kind in-arena barbershop and golf simulator suite. We are also enhancing the game day experience with a new courtside bar located directly behind the basket and a new in-arena restaurant. Phase I was completed in September 2017.
