World-Class Arena

CAA ICON served as the Developer’s Representative for OVG in their redevelopment of Seattle’s historic KeyArena into the Climate Pledge Arena. The project brings a state-of the-art civic arena designed to host music, entertainment, and sporting events to the people of Seattle. The world-class arena serves as the home venue for the new NHL franchise, the Seattle Kraken. 

Historic preservation

The design preserved the arena’s historic roofline, serves as the anchor for redevelopment of Seattle Center, and will be the first net zero carbon certified arena in the world. The new arena nearly doubled the size of its interior to 800,000 sf and features a club space where fans can view the arena bowl and the Space Needle. The project is a true partnership between OVG and the City of Seattle.
