The $110 million renovation of AT&T Center, home to the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs and more than 250 annual events, vastly improved the game-day experience. On non-game days a greatly expanded fan shop and a Whataburger restaurant enliven the neighborhood.
To inform the extreme arena makeover, HOK’s team engaged Spurs’ employees, players and fans.
The all-new experience begins upon arrival to the site with guests greeted by expanded entrances and exterior LED screens that display custom messages and event highlights.
Inside, fans enjoy renovated concourses, all-new seating, new lighting, 200 pieces of artwork, a high-definition scoreboard, a new audio system, enhanced Wi-Fi and several new restaurants. Premium options include 14 theater boxes that share a private dining area and a high-end VIP club for courtside season ticket holders. On the balcony level, two corner bars provide clear views of the action on the court.
Sustainable design strategies include high-efficiency lighting and HVAC systems that conserve energy while providing a more comfortable environment for fans.
The project included expanding and modernizing the Spurs’ locker room, coaching and training facilities.
Funded by a public-private partnership between Spurs Sports & Entertainment and Bexar County, this renovation was completed in just six months.
