SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The Sacramento Kings unveiled more concept drawings of what the new downtown home of the Sacramento Kings could look like.
Some of the design options include a ground level concourse with a sunken bowl—putting the court and lower level underground, in a sense.
The arena is also likely to have an open-air feel that will resemble what Kings officials call a baseball stadium. There are also thoughts of a park that will allow people to watch from outside.
“This concept of an open plaza, reconnecting the outdoors with the indoors, I think would be a really dynamic place, and I think Sacramento is going to be proud of this,” said Sacramento City Councilman Steve Hansen.
The city is set to contribute $258 million to the project, while the Kings ownership group handles the rest of the cost, as well as construction around the arena.
The team is also set to present again at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, ahead of Wednesday’s season opener.
The council says it would like to have more public input on the plans in the coming months.
