FIRST LOOK | Inside downtown Cleveland's newly renovated Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse

The grand re-opening takes place this Saturday at 11 a.m.

CLEVELAND — The multi-million-dollar renovation of Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse—formerly Gund Arena and Quicken Loans Arena—is nearly complete.

The project,—costing $185 million and extending the Cavaliers' lease at the venue through 2034—most notably features an expanded glass-enclosed atrium, several new food vendors, and even local art pieces displayed throughout. The Cavs will also unveil a "Wall of Honor" for the franchise's best players and moments, including the 2016 NBA championship team.

"The two-year transformation of Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is complete and we can’t wait to open the doors to the community and invite everyone in to see it, experience it, and take pride in it," Cavs CEO Len Komoroski said in a statement.

3News and other outlets got a sneak preview Tuesday of what's to come.

The Cavs will hold a grand-opening for the public on Saturday beginning at 11 a.m., and the first official event at the new space will take place the following night with a Black Keys concert. The Cavs will play their first regular season game at the arena on Oct. 26.
