Hawks Selling New Loge Boxes At Philips Arena, Just 20 Rows Off Floor
Seven new loge boxes or “micro-suites” at Philips Arena, "merely 20 rows from the arena floor, will replace some 140 club seats in Section 107, opposite the visiting team’s bench on the west side of the arena," according to Gary McKillips of the ATLANTA BUSINESS CHRONICLE. On the market for "a little less than two months, six of the seven new suites have been sold with a seventh contract pending." Each of the seven micro-suites has "four seats, two bar stools, flat-screen televisions and two iPads as well as access to a private bar and dining area." The loge package "gives owners access to all Hawks games, as well as concerts and shows at Philips Arena and preferred parking for each event." Atlanta-based New South Construction "oversaw building of the new loges, while the design was done in concert with" Atlanta-based architectural firm The Johnson Studio. Hawks and Philips Arena Senior VP & Chief Revenue Officer Andrew Steinberg said, “The loge boxes are being sold on terms of three to five years with a cost for the all-inclusive package in the low six figures.” He added that the new lower bowl loge boxes "provide fans the closest access to the action of any loge-type seating in the Atlanta market" (ATLANTA BUSINESS CHRONICLE, 7/12 issue).
