The $125 million renovation of Vivint Smart Home Arena, home of the Utah Jazz, has entered the final stretch, now a week away from hosting Faith Hill and Tim McGraw on September 27th. New landscaping has started edging the building, and carpeting is being installed on the sixth, and top, floor.
Crews from general contractor Okland Construction are expected to complete the job early, in time for the dry run and celebratory concert, featuring Rachel Platten, for workers and employees on September 21st.
The project at Vivint Smart Home Arena is a floor-to-ceiling makeover of all six levels of the NBA arena, reflecting many current market trends. Renovation highlights include replacement of all seats with a more comfortable version, movement of the club level to the second floor – creating the largest club space in the NBA, Wi-Fi installation, new restaurants and menu offerings, and upper level fan zones for socialization opportunities with views of the court.
A formal ceremony will officially open the renovated venue on October 18th, also the date of the Jazz home opener against the Denver Nuggets.
