This unique stadium design by Populous features a range of cutting edge features 

Taking its visual cues from the natural surroundings in Las Vegas, the design of the T-Mobile Arena by Populous bridges the desert, via its rock-inspired exterior, and the strip, via the glass facade that faces the street. The project team made a conscious effort to design a structure that not only accommodates a varied and complex program, but references its context and surroundings.

The arena makes use of site-specific Las Vegas material with gold and terracotta-toned stone providing the ideal element for the building’s bunker suite wall.

The project also features an innovative design-first staging system. The entertainment stage projects off the front of the building, bringing the entertainment from inside the building to audiences outside. This creates a fully immersive entertainment experience, where audiences throughout the building are captivated by the excitement of the show.

There is Wi-Fi throughout the building, providing enhanced support for social and virtual connectivity for a millennial demographic.

The T-Mobile Arena’s cutting-edge technology will be headlined by a 9,000 s.f. L.E.D video mesh that overlays the glass façade above the main entrance. This digital display will be highly visible, day and night, from Las Vegas Blvd.

The arena will target multiple social demographics by providing a broad range of seating and event options that include outdoor stages, bunker suites and lounges, premium clubs and luxury suites. The amenities at T-Mobile Arena provide ample opportunity for event goers to arrive early and stay late. In addition there will be premium seating products including 44 suites, 8 bunker suites, 1,800 club seats and 124 loge box seats.
