The owners of the Utah Jazz have announced a US$125m renovation and update plan for the Vivint Smart Home Arena. The work is expected to begin after the 2016/2017 NBA season ,with anticipated completion by autumn 2017.
As reported by Today’s Fastbreak, the Larry H Miller group of companies (the ownership group behind the Utah Jazz) has decided that, rather than relocate and build a new arena, they will upgrade the existing structure.
Murray Beynon, principal of Brisbin Brook Beynon and SCI Architects, told Jazz.com, “It has been clear from the outset that Vivint Smart Home Arena’s bones are very good and form an ideal basis to create an unsurpassed 21st century NBA facility […] The creation of interactive social and viewing platforms along with an array of new fresh food options, will transform the fan experience on all six levels. From the front row to the top, the guest experience will be improved for everyone.”
