Kings Hire Construction Team for New Arena
The Sacramento Kings are expected to announce today they have filled out their downtown arena construction team with the hiring of AECOM, a Los Angeles-based heavyweight in international sports architecture.
AECOM will take the lead this fall and next spring in designing a $448 million arena in Downtown Plaza, team President Chris Granger said.
The group will work in a Sacramento studio to enhance local input for what Granger said will be the most technologically advanced and noisiest arena in the world.
Construction is expected to start next August or September, Granger said.
