SALT LAKE CITY — Construction to remodel the Delta Center could begin as early as April 2025, Smith Entertainment Group officials said Tuesday as they updated Salt Lake City leaders on the plans for a proposed “sports, entertainment, culture and convention center” surrounding the arena.

The expansion would be carried out over multiple years, but the timeline of the remainder of the company’s plans — a hotel, housing and new walkable plaza with a jumbotron — remains unclear as negotiations between the two sides continue.

“The timeline for everything else would be determined in coordination with both the city and county. There are a lot of factors that go into all of that,” said Smith Entertainment Group executive Mike Maughan.

Maughan offered a few new details to the Salt Lake City Council during an hourlong follow-up discussion, including new renderings that show what types of overhauls Smith Entertainment Group would like to see directly east of the Delta Center as a part of the massive plan.

Possible Delta Center reconfiguration

The renderings show that the Delta Center would be reconfigured with an expansion jetting out toward its northeast edge. New buildings would be constructed on its eastern corners, replacing its northeast and southeast plazas.
