Rupp Arena, which has served since 1976 as the home of University of Kentucky basketball, will be getting a major facelift. Luxury suites, a private club and lounge, and loge boxes will be added in the re-invention, a project that will be led by the architecture firm NBBJ. Above is an initial conceptual rendering of the project.
