The yellowish (sprint) panels for the appropriate T-Mobile magenta.
I don't think I remember those. Cool nevertheless

What are the prospects of seeing Sprint Center re-skinned in my lifetime?
After this round of changes, probably not going to see that happen unless naming rights change.

One big project that will happen downtown will be the re-skinning of the KC Live roof though.
How long is the lifespan on something like that? Do you see them enclosing the place like STL Live?

Look at this hideous skyline and that atrocious sign.

I love the sign!
Would look a lot better if 3L was completed and 4L was under construction:)

It should have lasted much longer than it has. The manufacturer has admitted to some design flaws but won’t replace it. It’s a big project to pull off old roof, clean and paint steel structure and replace roof.

It was priced out to enclose the area to make it climate controlled but it was very high. It would only happen if T-Mobile arena got a nba or nhl team.

Your electronic billboard facing south is in need of maintenance.

All further maintenance requests must come through Instagram

Joking aside, that whole area needs an art redo

It doesn’t need maintenance, it needs replaced! They struggle with all their exterior LED’s weekly and have guys out to service them regularly.

Bigger replacements are better ;)
