Topping Out at the New Arena

Mystics players, coaches and staff joined Monumental Sports & Entertainment leadership, Events DC and Mayor Muriel Bowser on the St. Elizabeths Campus in Congress Heights to commemorate the “topping out” of the team’s brand-new arena, which will serve as the home venue for the Mystics, the NBA G League’s Capital City Go-Go and the state-of-the-art practice facility of the Washington Wizards when it opens in Fall 2018.

The “topping out” ceremony recognizes the placement of the structure’s highest beam and celebrates the work that has been done to that point. Attendees had the opportunity to sign and take photos with the ceremonial beam before a crane lifted it to the building’s summit.
