Project Description

This 612,000-square-foot, multi-purpose sports facility is home to the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes. The facility features a 17,500-seat configuration, 88 box suites and 400 club seats. All seats in the arena have full view of the ice.

The facility has some unique features including a 30-foot depth from the ice to the concourse – 5 feet lower than many arenas – allowing seating to be closer to the ice. Additionally, concourses are open to the action, eliminating entry tunnels from concessions to seating areas.

The state-of-the-art arena serves as an anchor to a 6,000,000-square-foot development that includes restaurants, offices, entertainment and recreational uses, hotels and residential living, and 1,600,000 square feet of retail.

“To the Tutor Perini people, the place does look beautiful, and when it is all complete, it will be an arena that the entire community should be very proud of.”
