Re Arena design: One of the major benefits of locating the proposed arena at the Downtown Plaza site was to help revitalize K Street.
With that in mind, I am surprised that the current plan shows the main entrance at the Northwest corner of the arena, facing away from K Street. This is like putting the front door of your house facing the back yard. Not very welcoming.
I recommend changing the orientation of the entrance to face down K Street, which would provide a spectacular visual all the way down K Street to the Convention Center, and would serve as the crowning jewel of a new, revitalized restaurant and entertainment district.
