Thunder's arena gets new concourse, video screens

The second phase of a $100 million renovation of the Oklahoma City Thunder's arena has been completed, adding new video monitors and concession stands and a renovated concourse.

The redesigned concourses feature a terrazzo floor, repainted walls and a cylindrical video board that officials say doesn't exist at any other arena. The so-called "UFO" board is 92 feet around and more than 7½ feet tall.

There's also a new video board on the north side of the arena that is 74 feet wide and 20 feet high.

The latest changes, funded by a one-penny sales tax, cost about $36 million.

The final phase of the Chesapeake Energy Arena renovation is scheduled to be completed by June. It includes a new grand entrance, a three-story atrium and a family fun zone.
