Part of the newly constructed Downtown Commons entertainment complex, the Sacramento Downtown Plaza Tower is a 428,000 -sq.-ft. mixed-use tower in the entertainment district of downtown Sacramento, California. It houses a movie theater complex, retail outlets and a new sports arena for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. House & Robertson served as executive architects for the 16-story vertical mixed-use tower, which includes a public lobby, 45,000 sq. ft. of retail, 35,000 sq. ft. of office space for the team and arena management, a 250-room Kimpton hotel, and 44 residential units, all above two levels of below-grade parking. The tower is connected to the Downtown Commons complex through a series of walkways and open-air plazas that can be used for pre- or post-game events, outdoor performances, farmers’ markets and seasonal events. The open-air plaza, and the design of the structure below it, required close collaboration between HRA and the arena’s design team. The project is scheduled for completion in August 2017.
