A complete overhaul to the main concourse combined with an additional 4,000 square feet of open concourse space makes way for an expansive food hall style market for all guests to enjoy a communal dining experience alongside their fellow fans. Bistro meets marketplace in this unique space complete with a “Grab & Go” food and beverage boutique and industrial atmosphere. It’s not your traditional food hall, it’s better. New open concept modern concession stands, in the style of some of Philadelphia’s most historic public markets feature extensive menu options to match every taste.
WHAT'S HAPPENED SO FAR
When fully expanded, the world’s first-ever Kinetic 4K system, combined with the crown trusses, features the most square feet of center-hung 4mm LED video technology in an arena that hosts both NBA and NHL games. While compressed, the configuration embodies a more traditional equilateral display that provides Wells Fargo Center with an ability to tailor-fit its presentation. Altogether, the Wells Fargo Center’s new center-hung system features a grand total of more than 6,600 square feet of 4mm LED video technology.
The upper level of the arena became one of the most coveted tickets in the building with an unprecedented mix of amenities and options that redefine traditional in-arena rituals for fans old and new. This level now includes: the Assembly Room, BetRivers.com Sports Lounge, Revolutionary Row, Liberty Lofts and the Disassembly (Rage) Room.
Located just steps away from the action, the fully reimagined Center City Club introduces a new level of entertainment to Wells Fargo Center. Combining the city’s vibrant culture with just the right amount of luxury, guests immerse themselves in an unexpected and flawlessly curated modern atmosphere while enjoying an event. A large show cooking kitchen flanked by two 50-foot bars on either side showcase the latest custom menu creations. Perfect for entertaining clients or gathering with friends to indulge in your favorite food and beverage offerings, the space sets the stage for a memorable and exclusive event experience for guests sitting courtside and in the nearby sections.
ANC collaborated with Wells Fargo Center on technological advancements for the arena including an additional 10,000 square feet of state-of-the-art LED. Wells Fargo Center now features 103 displays, 68 servers, 44 mezzanine displays, 34 main concourse menu boards, 20 atrium displays, 10 in-arena displays, four scalers, and three third party systems (including lighting) being triggered that can all be synchronized with one click.
In the fall of 2018, Wells Fargo Center completed a total makeover of the Mezzanine Level, which accommodates approximately 40 percent of the arena’s total capacity. Not a single aspect of the Mezzanine Level’s original layout was left untouched, as new and expanded food and beverage options, concourse layouts with skyline views, over 150 new LED game-action screens, and upgraded points of sale were introduced.
Wells Fargo Center started its overall Transformation with a complete remodeling and elevation to its Suite Level. Upgrades included:
- A more spacious environment
- New stools, cabinets, furniture, and finishes, including an additional barstool per suite
- Built-in induction burners and contemporary serving dishes
- Opportunity to showcase your company logo
- High-back leather arena seats
- Porcelain tile flooring and new carpet in the seating area
- Suite Level entrance & corridor improvements
In a major step toward welcoming fans back to the arena, Wells Fargo Center completed major health and safety advancements, including being awarded the WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management. The arena also administered an $11 million renovation of the HVAC system, which now allows all the air in the arena's seating bowl to be replaced every 30 minutes.
The ongoing Transformation project has several more phases ahead, including a complete overhaul of the Club Level, new team locker rooms and performer amenities, upgrades to the building’s exterior and redesigned entrances, and more.
