LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Staples Center President Lee Zeidman announced that AEG's flagship venue the Staples Center has completed its three-year, $20 Million upgrade project.
Enhancements completed in the final $5 million dollar phase of construction over the summer included full upgrades to all 170 private suites, 16 event suites, and the premium level concession stands starting in May and recently completed on September 1st.
Previous phases of construction saw AEG invest over $7 million in 2014-15 to upgrade its lighting system to energy-efficient LED lighting, added a new retractable seating system in the arena and transformed the TEAM LA Store to a larger retail space last December. An additional $8 million investment included the DraftKings Fantasy Sports Bar & Lounge and upgrades to 14 of the concession stands on the main and upper concourses, including the new Bud Cooler that were completed throughout the 2015-16 season.
“We are incredibly excited about all the concession upgrades that we completed during the season last year, but we are even more thrilled with the complete upgrades and redesign of all of our Private Suites and our Event Suites,” said Zeidman. “Every year it is our goal to keep Staples Center looking fresh, to have industry leading guest amenities and provide state of the art technology to our guests, tenants, promoters and special events.”- Staff Writers
