Located in the south’s ‘crown jewel’ city of Atlanta, Georgia, Philips Arena is a multi-use entertainment complex adjoining Atlanta’s CNN Center, encompassing the Omni Hotel, multiple restaurants, shopping, MARTA’s rail line and even the Georgia Dome. Built in 1999 at a cost of just under $214 million, Philips Arena is the home to the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and the WNBA Atlanta Dream and has even hosted an Ice Hockey team in years past.
Philips Arena is truly one of the best arenas in the U.S. for a variety of reasons: They regularly host the very best entertainers and bands, from Aerosmith to Madonna, as well as special events such as Barnum & Bailey’s Circus. Philips Arena was the World’s very first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Certified NBA arena. This has had huge implications for the structure, from tax credits, zoning allowances and asset value, while utilizing best in-class building strategies to reduce its environmental footprint.
