The Utah Jazz finally showed what $125M can do when you apply it to an existing arena. While other NBA teams have been pushing multi-million or even billion dollar arena projects, the Utah Jazz showed dedication to the house that Larry built and it looks like it will pay off.

The $125M renovation project will begin next offseason directly after the end of the 2016-2017 season. It’s going to be a quick remodel job considering there’s a good chance the Utah Jazz are going to be playing into June May.

The new upgrade will consist of:

  • Improved concession areas
  • A revamped lobby
  • A gorgeous redesigned locker room
  • An open level for the upper bowl so fans can watch the game while getting concessions.
  • Redesigned outside exterior and ticket center that is not located in the basement.
  • Solar roof

One thing absent from all the renderings is a focus around the Stockton & Malone statues. Will they get a different type of featuring? What happens with those?

Overall the renderings look beautiful and this whole redesign is beautiful and exciting. Check them out below! Pictures are courtesy of vivintarena.com.
