First renderings of new Las Vegas Arena unveiled

Joint venture partners AEG and MGM Resorts International have released the first images and details of the 20,000-seat sports and entertainment venue which will be located near the heart of the famed Las Vegas Strip and adjacent to the I-15 corridor.

The new arena, which is expected to break ground in April 2014, is being designed with an array of premium offerings and club experiences as well as features that will make it suitable to host NBA and NHL teams, concerts, boxing, mixed martial arts, family shows, award shows and other major events.

The arena, which will be the centerpiece of the revitalisation of the area between New York-New York and Monte Carlo resorts, is scheduled to open in spring 2016. The project’s anticipated cost of approximately US$350m will be financed entirely with equity contributions from the partners and privately funded third-party debt financing. In keeping with the partners’ commitment to building responsibly, the arena is being designed to meet the US Green Building Council’s standards for LEED Gold Certification.

Since its selection as the project’s architect of record, Populous has worked closely with the project owners and their project manager, ICON Venue Group, to design an arena that will connect the contrasting influences of Las Vegas – the desert and Spring Mountains to the west and the pulsating, high-energy Las Vegas Boulevard to the east. To capture the excitement of The Strip, the design includes an expansive glass façade with an LED overlay, sweeping, dramatic balconies, an exterior performance stage and a sleek exterior that is as bold as it is sophisticated, creating a visually captivating and iconic focal point in Las Vegas’ bustling entertainment market.

The renderings highlight day and night exterior views of the arena, which reaches 145ft at the highest point of the roof. A monumental glass entry façade with a giant LED overlay runs along the northeast side of the arena reaching a height of 118ft at the parapet of the entry façade.
