Gotta respect his honesty.

The Center, which opened in 1996, will undergo a multi-phase redesign that will cost roughly $250 million and include the following, per a release:

Multifunctional, open-concept concourses featuring views of Philadelphia's skyline

Over 150 new LED game-action screens, menu boards and illumination technology delivering a complete visual transformation

8,000 brand new seats featuring cup holders

Expanded Food and Beverage Locations and Offerings

In addition to more social spaces, the Center will also get a brand new state of the art sound system and more than 10,000 incremental square feet of LED displays.

"Our guests have unlimited entertainment options at their fingertips," President of the Wells Fargo Center John Page said in the release. "We've designed this next phase of the Wells Fargo Center to promote more social gathering inside the arena, and enhanced technology offerings that improve the overall experience."

The redesigned mezzanine level is scheduled to be completed by fall of 2018 with additional changes to follow.
