The renderings show a see-through building with a giant dramatic entrance and multiple balconies.
It also features glass, recycled aluminum and concrete.
The team calls it an "iconic design that celebrates the best of Sacramento."
Team President Chris Granger says the intent of the design is to blur the lines between inside and outside.
"Aside from our grand entrance which is 50-feet tall, 150-feet long, literally opens up like a window," he says. "We'll have a myriad of balconies and windows throughout the building. Most arenas are very introverted. You come inside the building, the doors close, you're looking at what's happening on the court. In our case, it's very extroverted.
AECOM is the architect of the project. The company says the arena will allow people to see events from the outside through the openings.
According to a statement from the team, Farm-to-Fork venues will be available throughout the facility.
In the statement, Jon Niemuth, AECOM director of sports for the Americas, says the design has never been done before.
“Each design element shows that this arena is built for Sacramento," Niemuth said. "We’re aiming for a facility that celebrates the city, strengthens the downtown community, supports the team’s success and offers an unmatched fan experience.”
The company says the arena will be built with some local materials including Sierra limestone.
The Sacramento Kings finished the 2013-14 season with exactly the same record as 2012-2013. But, the team and its fans say it sure feels different.
The City of Sacramento could get as much as a million dollars as the local share of construction-related sales taxes collected for a new arena downtown.
As the demolition date for the portion of the Downtown Plaza where the arena will be built looms, business owners prepare to move or close.
Sacramento's Planning and Design commission have approved plans for the King's downtown arena.
A judge has given Sacramento possession of a former Macy's department store downtown, the last parcel of land needed for the development of a new sports arena.
