Our team has been involved as a consultant and advisor on the Spectrum Center Renovation project since early 2020 and is currently serving as project manager to oversee the renovations to the arena. CAA ICON previously provided a broad scope of work including a venue assessment, feasibility analysis, project development plan, deal structure/lease analysis, and negotiation support with the City of Charlotte. The result is $275 million in public money to finance both arena renovations and a new $60 million practice facility across the street.

The substantial renovations will update and upgrade the nearly 20-year-old facility and will include enhancements to the entrances, seating bowl, premium areas, concessions, restrooms, roof, and other facility systems and spaces. The renovations will take place over the next two summers and be completed for the 2025-26 NBA season.
