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.
Six months after receiving the approval to begin construction of a downtown arena, the Sacramento Kings and the City of Sacramento have broken ground.
The first demolition work is underway at the site of the Sacramento Kings' future home.
The Downtown Plaza garage entrances at 6th and J and 6th and L are now closed as construction begins on the downtown arena.
People with affiliations to the group Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork have filed notice they will appeal a judge's decision denying a request for an injunction blocking the downtown arena project.
Parts of Downtown Plaza will be demolished Friday to make way for the Sacramento Kings arena project.
