Image in Flight has been fortunate enough to be the “Drone Cam” for the Golden 1 Center since June of 2015. We captured all of the progress from the erection of the structural steel to the pouring of the actual court floor. The G1C (Golden 1 Center) is at the heart of the revitalization of downtown Sacramento.
What is Golden 1 Center:
The project encompasses four city blocks right in the heart of downtown that will be a major catalyst for development in the surrounding area and in the entire region. The arena itself is an indoor multi-use facility that will accommodate sporting and top entertainment events such as professional and collegiate sports, concerts, ice shows, indoor rodeo, trade shows, large graduations, family shows, and other indoor entertainment. It also contains a state of the art practice facility with administrative offices.
The project also includes up to 1.5 million square feet of additional development including 475,000 square feet of office space, 350,000 square feet of retail, a 250-room hotel, and up to 500,000 square feet for residential units. The first phase of the project includes over 715,000 square feet of development, over 300,000 square feet of retail, 128,000 square feet of office, a 250-room hotel and up to 50 residential units.
