Honda Center Officially Breaks Ground on Grand Terrace Project

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
Anaheim Arena Management (AAM) executives, along with Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait, officially broke ground today on Honda Center’s Grand Terrace Project, the most extensive upgrade in venue history.  The multimillion dollar renovation includes construction of a new public restaurant, an expanded team store and the centerpiece of the project, The Grand Terrace.

“Orange County has been our home for many years and long before becoming formally involved, my family and I came to Honda Center as fans,” said Henry Samueli, Anaheim Ducks and AAM owner. “It’s been remarkable to see the arena develop into the state-of-the art facility it is today, and we are excited to play a part in its continued improvement.”

Encompassing 15,000 square feet, The Grand Terrace will be located on the south side of the venue on the San Manuel Premium Level and can be entered from both inside and outside of Honda Center. The exclusive indoor/outdoor entertainment space will be equipped with an 80-foot bar, unique dining options, upscale décor and service of the highest degree. Eighty percent of annual memberships have already been purchased by Anaheim Ducks season seat holders. A limited number remain and deposits can be made by calling 877-WILD-WING.

“Anaheim consistently ranks among the finest cities in the country, which is clearly a reflection of the leadership shown by Mayor Tom Tait, the city council and city officials,” said Michael Schulman, Chairman of the Board of Honda Center. “This project is yet another testament to the city’s forward-thinking management and position as a premier sports and entertainment destination.”

The new full-service public restaurant, which will be located on the main level of Honda Center, will feature an extensive menu and enhance the atmosphere for every event at the arena.  A new Anaheim Ducks Team Store on the venue’s south side will expand from 1,800 square feet to 4,200, allowing space for greater merchandise selection, unique team-branded clothing lines and specialty items from around the league.

“Orange County has proven to be a fantastic market for live entertainment, and we continually strive to provide fans with a world-class experience at Honda Center,” said Tim Ryan, President/CEO of the venue. “Upon completion of The Grand Terrace Project, our guests will enjoy amenities that compare favorably with premier facilities around the country, including venues in major sports cities like Chicago, Boston, Dallas and Toronto.”
Designed by Rengel+Co Architects of Tustin, CA and constructed by Banyan Group Construction, Inc. of Torrance, CA, the project is set to be completed in early 2013. Further details regarding each of these projects, including opening dates and more specific timelines will be announced as information becomes available.
