Loving the details


I liked the location but would rather see it close to the Space Needle. Honestly I'm happy with everything right now :lol:

The designs have really come a long way since November. I'm impressed...with everything. I wasn't a fan of the turbine in the beginning, but I love the newly added detail of it going all the way down to street level. Love the lighting effects, love the grassy area on the roof. Looks great.

In short: you liked everything. :lol:

I'm really dumb. Didn't notice the roof was supposed to look like a turbin.

The more the new arena design has been fleshed out, the more I've come to like it. What you call a turbine I called a flan dumped on a plate for someone's dessert. But the added details have made it seem more inviting and unique. It's a building I think the city will be proud of, which definitely sets it apart from KeyArena.

Personally, I have a much easier time getting to Mariners/Seahawks games than I do getting to Seattle Center from the East side [and when I'm working our Seattle office which is in Queen Anne and trying to get home it's a damned nightmare]. I'm not sure if that will hold true for a Sonics games after work but we'll see.

Well I only called it that because that's what they called it in the PowerPoint presentation. Ha!

Thanks bro I used to be Sonics-FAN around here before I changed my nickname for fantasy basketball purposes. :lol:

Here's a nice video of Fred Brown doing his thing back in the day.

The guy was awessome. A Ray Allen type of shooter. He can hit from everywhere.

Really wish it was going closer to the Key to liven up that side a little more. This move makes sense though.

I like the idea of doing other things with Seattle Center. Turning that crappy arcade into the Chihuly exhibit was a stroke of genius. With the Chihuly exhibit, the EMP, Space Needle, Pacific Science Center, etc. there is some cool stuff down there. Plus, if we're using the Key until the new arena is built I'm not sure where you could find a spot in that area to do other things.

Having all the arenas clustered together would presumably encourage better parking options too.

There's a new topic on sonicsarena.com and it shows how the new arena could look like for Hockey games.

I really like the design overall and hockey would certainly look good there as well.

Hockey Anyone?

The Sonic Rings idea is cool, where people will virtually be sitting over the court. That's what Chris meant early on when he said he had some special ideas about the upper level sections.

As a fellow Designer in training, i am very impressed with these concepts. I think that the BOG would have to check it out.
