Golden 1 Center
A multi-purpose entertainment and sports facility located in downtown Sacramento, California, the Golden 1 Center serves as home to the National Basketball Association’s Sacramento Kings.
It’s one of the main features of the downtown area known as the Downtown Commons, or “DoCo” for short.
In order to ensure the Kings’ future being in Sacramento, an ownership group headed by Vivek Ranadivé purchased the majority share in the team and agreed to workout a deal for a new stadium in 2016.
One of the stadium’s most innovative features is that it’ll be grid and carbon neutral. As well as being LEED Gold-Certified.
