SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- The Utah Jazz and the Miller Family unveiled a new addition to Salt Lake City and welcomed the community to see the renovated Vivint Smart Home Arena.
After more than 25 years after the original arena opened, a new era began at the Vivint Smart Home Arena as they unveiled an iconic Utah Jazz statue on the plaza of the arena. The J-Note measuring 14-feet high and 21-feet wide was revealed to hundreds of Jazz fans on Tuesday. As the statue was unveiled, members of the Miller family welcomed the community to the renovated arena.
The $125 million renovation updated all six levels of the arena enhancing the guest experience. Additions to the building include a 12,000-square-foot atrium with an exclusive Jazz Team Store, redesigned lower and upper bowl concourses with new fully cushioned seats in the bowl, and destination dining restaurants.
Construction for the renovation was impressive. More than 2,000 workers spent 129 days on the project; demolishing concrete walls, removing all the green plastic chairs and building new dining, club and social spaces.
The community is invited to see the renovations through the month of October. Book online at www.nba.com/jazz/arena-tours, call 801-355-DUNK or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make reservations.
