Atlanta Hawks Break Ground on $192.5M Renovation of Philips Arena in Downtown Atlanta

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club has broken ground on the transformation of Philips Arena, the NBA team’s home venue in downtown Atlanta. The $192.5 million renovation will include a new center-hung scoreboard, concourses with 360-degree connectivity, 250-seat master conference room with four additional breakout rooms and added dining and beverage options.

Zac Brown, Atlanta native and lead singer of Zac Brown Band, will open Zac Brown’s Social Club, a Southern gourmet-style restaurant with a live music stage. Sports entertainment company Topgolf will offer Swing Suites to be rented by the hour for groups of up to 15, featuring two Topgolf simulators, HDTVs, lounge seating, food and beverage service and a view into the arena. Rapper, actor and activist Killer Mike will open one of his signature SWAG Shop barbershops, giving fans the opportunity for full hair service while watching the game. HOK is the leading architect on the project.

Construction on the city-owned arena is slated for completion during the 2018-2019 NBA season. The Hawks committed to an 18-year lease extension to remain in downtown Atlanta through 2046.
