Huntington Civic Arena Entrance Plaza Renovation

Huntington Civic Arena Entrance Plaza Renovation Overview

Huntington, WV

As part of an effort to expand the usefulness of a regional arena and meeting space, the City of Huntington, West Virginia engaged the team of GAI’s Community Solutions Group (CSG) and Ed Tucker Architects to envision the future of the Huntington Civic Arena. GAI’s CSG lead the master planning and design effort for the renovation of the building’s entrance plaza. The existing plaza, a large, empty expanse of concrete, offered a blank slate for the design team to create a true community asset.

The final design offers multiple amenities that are meant to enhance the visitor experience at concerts, conventions, and other community events. Conference spaces were expanded to include outdoor space. For concert goers, the plaza includes a covered stage for entertainment before the main event. Gathering spaces such as a fountain, firepits, and seating areas are also included to accommodate community events. The plaza is anticipated to reopen in fall 2020.
