Developers of proposed 76ers arena host 1st in-person community meeting; make changes after input

The development team for the proposed 76ers arena held their first in-person community meeting Thursday night at the Sheraton in Center City.

Since the announcement in the summer of 2022, developer and Sixers limited owner David Adelman said they’ve held 100 meetings with various groups.

“We want to give them real answers. All of a sudden people who were unsure become neutral, maybe they can become positive. I’m in this to get this right. I’m in this to make the city happy. I’m in it to make our fans happy,” said Adelman to 6abc ahead of the meeting.

The group says the $1.5 billion project will bring more than $1 billion in new tax revenues for the city, state and school district over a 30-lease term, and will lead to 12,000 construction jobs.
