We could see PNC Arena upgrades in the future, as consultant Ratio360 has proposed several renovation plans to the Centennial Authority Board, which maintains the home of the Carolina Hurricanes (NHL) and North Carolina State Wolfpack.
The arena’s exterior would be altered and expanded, with widened concourses on the north and south sides of PNC Arena, with less dramatic changes to the east and west sides of the arena. Most of the fan enhancements would occur on the south side of the arena, with the addition of a new rooftop bar and restaurant, an expanded entryway, more retail space, and an additional meeting space. The north side of the arena would be expanded with a new game-day staff entrance and more.
There is no cost estimate yet for the upgrades; any final price tag will depend on the extent of the changes.
