Hawks to Get Downtown Arena

November 03, 1996|Associated Press

The Atlanta Hawks reached agreement Saturday with city officials to build a $215-million arena in downtown Atlanta to replace their current home, the Omni. The new arena, if approved by municipal authorities, would open for the 1999-2000 season. Demolition of the Omni would start in June.

During construction, the Hawks would play most of their home games at Georgia Tech and a few at the Georgia Dome.
