A basketball stadium in North Carolina is to be renovated by a joint venture between contractors Turner and DA Everett, with architect Perkins & Will, consultant CAA Icon and concessions partner Levy.
The Spectrum Centre hosts the Charlotte Hornets, which competes in the National Basketball Association, as well as college basketball matches.
The project will include additional gathering spaces for fans, such as four new themed “destinations” and a concourse.
Some 2,500 lower-level seats will be added, all bowl seating will be replaced and premium spaces, such as clubs and suites, will be renewed, as will food and beverage option and back-of-house facilities.
Donna Julian, Hornets Sports & Entertainment’s executive vice president, said: “We are thrilled to share initial renovation plans with our guests, who have been top of our mind at every stage throughout the reimagining process.
“We have always viewed Spectrum Centre as an important community asset that brings people together and has tremendous economic impact for our city. Re!magine Spectrum Centre touches nearly every aspect of the arena and allows us to remain the premier destination for sports and entertainment in the Carolinas.”
Work will be conducted in the NBA off-season between May and September in 2024 and 2025.
