Checking In With Progress at Sacramento's New NBA Arena

Quote:
A tour of the facility was recently posted on the project's website featuring Golden 1 Center Senior VP/General Manager Juan Rodriguez, and Sacramento Kings fan and Kings.com contributor Kevin Fippin.
An aerial video, captured in late-January via drone, provides further insight into the current stage of construction, while also helping to place the arena and adjacent tower into context.

Anyone know why they needed a protruding window? I think they really messed up the design on that wall.

^^I figure it's just a riff on that "box-on-box" design fad you see around these days (e.g. the hotel tower being built next door).

Looks like the solar panels are finally getting installed on the arena roof.

Sir Paul opened Golden1 tonight with a bit over 18K folks flocking to the arena. The auto traffic, especially exiting I-5 onto J Street, was nowhere near as bad as I would have thought. The open house festivities this past weekend drew upwards of 100K over a 6 hour span, and that too did not cause any traffic gridlock that I witnessed. The biggest payoff I believe was the superb street energy with folks meandering through downtown, and at least 3 new restaurants and more opening soon. It felt much more like San Francisco, in a good way. Hopefully this arena is a long-term game changer for downtown growth.

Agreed! I think over the long term it will help create enough energy in and around the arena that developers see the potential for more residential projects in close proximity of the new arena. I'm doubtful it will happen before the next economic downturn (unfortunately) so Sacramento may not see much built (besides what is happening on K street) for the next 5 to 7 years.

In town this weekend for my nieces wedding, a friend and I ventured down to Golden 1 Center after brunch today to get a look at the Jeff Koons piece and the giant hangar doors at Golden 1 Center but security was denying people entrance to the Plaza.

I certainly understand that event security will require them to close the public plaza in front of the arena but I'm extremely disappointed they restricted access several hours before the next event (apparently a WWE event tonight).

I would think they would want to bring people down there if they truly want it to be the community "living room" or civic piazza. I'm disappointed to say the least and it looked like they were turning away a lot of people.

Maybe there's also the consideration that it's still an active construction site, between the hotel tower and whatever they're doing with Downtown Plaza.

There's also the fact that Tim Kaine will be at a fundraising event at the G1C tomorrow morning before the WWE event.

I went to both fan fest and the McCartney concert. I was too surprised that there were metal detectors in order to get to the main plaza. So anytime there's an event, non-ticket holders will not have access to the plaza unless they pass through security? I thought the main plaza was for public use whether there's an event or not. I'm more disappointed at that than the stupid cup holders or the steepness of the upper bowl

Golden 1 Center Time-Lapse: Capturing 26 Months of Work in Two Minutes
Quote:
The Sacremento Kings of the National Basketball Association have made the transition from Sleep Train Arena to Golden 1 Center, a brand new multi-purpose venue spanning four city blocks in the downtown core. As fans pour through the space and grow accustomed to the state-of-the-art facility, an enlightening time-lapse video produced by EarthCam showcases the hard work that it took to get to this point.
