Hornets Sports & Entertainment today unveiled plans and renderings for its Re!magine Spectrum Center arena improvement project. The project, which includes a range of transformational upgrades throughout the building, is one of the first steps the organization is taking to bring to fruition its redefined vision of elevating HSE by building the premier franchise in the NBA and maintaining a world-class venue. Renovations are expected to take place during the next two NBA offseasons – beginning in May 2024 – and be completed prior to the start of the 2025-26 NBA season.

“We are thrilled to share initial renovation plans with our guests, who have been top of mind at every stage throughout the reimagining process,” said Hornets Sports & Entertainment Executive Vice President & Spectrum Center General Manager Donna Julian. “We have always viewed Spectrum Center as an important community asset that brings people together and has tremendous economic impact for our city. Re!magine Spectrum Center touches nearly every aspect of the arena and allows us to remain the premier destination for sports and entertainment in the Carolinas, drawing more high-profile events and thus more patrons to Uptown Charlotte, positively benefitting nearby restaurants, bars, hotels and other local businesses.”

Julian added, “This project is an extremely collaborative effort with the City of Charlotte and Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, as well as architect Perkins&Will, construction companies Turner and D.A. Everett, consultant CAA ICON and our concessions partner, Levy. We look forward to seeing our collective vision come to fruition over the next two years, and we’re confident the planned enhancements will set up Spectrum Center for success long into our future.”
