Charlotte Bobcats Arena


Ellerbe Becket, Inc., as lead architect, created a Charlotte Bobcats Arena building that represents Charlotte, NC’s character, combining the textile spools of the past with brick, arches, steel, glass and metal elements. The project was built on time and within the $265 million budget.
