Philips Arena

This 20,000-seat multi-purpose venue is adjacent to CNN Center and the Georgia World Congress Convention Center. The arena is the home of the NBA Atlanta Hawks and designed to host concerts, sporting events, conventions and other shows. A special feature of this project is the retail, entertainment and restaurant corridor HawkWalk and the Thrashers Nest, open to patrons year-round, which connects the arena to CNN Center and includes the team store for the Hawks and the Hawks Hall of Fame.
