Design Plans Approved for Kings Arena Complex Hotel, Condo Tower
The Sacramento Kings are now building their 3rd arena since moving from Kansas City in 1985, this one looks like it might get the job done.
A 16-story hotel and condo tower planned for the downtown Sacramento arena complex got the green light from the city’s Planning Commission on Thursday, a pivotal step that allows the Kings to begin construction of the project.
Planning commissioners praised the project before voting unanimously to approve the design plans. Commissioner Kim Mack said changes made to the design were “phenomenal” and joked that she wanted to get on the list for one of the 69 apartments that will fill the top four floors of the building.
Other commissioners lauded the design for complementing public spaces that will surround the $477 million arena and said the tower would become an iconic structure downtown.
