Scope: The $40 million, 5,000-seat facility is designed to host basketball and volleyball games and tournaments, as well as graduation ceremonies and other special events. The maple court floor is removable and expandable, suiting both the 84 feet required for high school games and the 94 feet required for NCAA play. Lower-level seating is also retractable, allowing for additional floor space, if needed. Additionally, the 139,874 sq ft facility features modern locker and training rooms, HISD Athletics Department offices, and athletic storage for the existing outdoor stadium and field, which can be viewed from a balcony on the second floor. The entrance to the arena also showcases a portion of the center court floor from the original fieldhouse.
Working to achieve LEED certification.
This would be one of the first high school arenas to be LEED certified.
