Preliminary arena blueprints released!

As reported by Ryan Lillis and Dale Kasler of the Sacramento Bee, the Kings have released to the city what look to be the early architectural plans from AECOM for the downtown arena. The complete plans are usually about 100 pages or so, so we should see the rest of the document soon which will show renderings of the skin and interiors plus a lot more detail. Good stuff for arena architecture junkies like myself.

Just a few things I have noticed after looking through the plans: the arena looks to be oriented in a direction that differs from the most recent renderings we have seen the past few weeks, the interior appears to match exactly with these renderings down to the "open" base line concourse to the outside and the standing room bridges over this area on the above concourses, and the plans call for on-site practice courts. The only thing I was disappointed to see is that there currently appears to be no plans for terraces to enjoy the downtown views and nice weather. Still very early on though and things will change quite a bit until the final design is approved. Just as an example (and to also compare), I have included a link to the most recent Seattle arena plans which have changed quite a bit as it has gone through the design and review process. Neat stuff for some of us design geeks. Please discuss. What do you like or are disappointed to not see?
