Mayor Kevin Johnson and the Sacramento Kings unveiled new drawings of the planned downtown arena at Wednesday night’s State of the City address.

The drawings show the interior of the arena during a concert and new views of the public plaza outside the facility. A plan for the city to contribute $258 million to the $448 million arena was a focus of the mayor’s speech at Memorial Auditorium.
