Anaheim Arena Management will begin a series of major renovations on the Honda Center in the fall. The company, which manages the city-owned venue, plans to update the facility with a 12,000-square-foot Grand Terrace addition and will more than double the space for the Ducks team store, among other developments.
The project helped the center seal the deal on more than 80 percent of the annual season passes during presales, according to Anaheim Arena Management.
“We are thrilled to unveil the most significant improvement project ever seen at Honda Center,” said Tim Ryan, president and CEO of the firm.
Also on the list of renovations: adding more concessions options, including a full-service restaurant that will seat up to 250 guests. Suite renovations also began earlier in the year with major upgrades to all 84 boxes.
“Honda Center is one of Anaheim’s world-class facilities, and the planned improvements will ensure it continues to be recognized as one of the finest sports and entertainment facilities in this country and abroad,” said Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait. “Not only will the improvements enhance the guest experience, but more than ever, Honda Center itself will be NBA-ready.”
The company plans to release more information regarding the project's timeline and opening dates in the coming weeks.
