Elevating the “Dragon Experience” at the Daskalakis Athletic Center
Kimmel Bogrette is working with Drexel Athletics leaders and University administrators to renovate and expand their Division I Basketball and Sports Arena. The project includes an all-new fan experience with 3,500 seats, new concourses, suites, VIP boxes and a dramatic new entrance lobby. Built in 1975, the Daskalakis Athletic Center, fondly known as “The DAC,” houses Drexel’s basketball programs as well as intramural and intercollegiate athletic programs. Underlying goals for the transformation include preserving the intense intimacy of the field-house-style gym while giving the Arena more of an upscale, 21st century sense of excitement. LED ribbons, NBA-style basketball goals and a four-sided central scoreboard with video replay capability will complete the transformation technologically while the new, spacious concourse will offer concessions and convenient rest facilities to elevate the game-day experience for Dragons fans, alumni and visitors.
