Honda Center is the premier sports and entertainment venue in Southern California. It's home to the NHL Anaheim Ducks® and hosts a variety of family shows, top-billed concerts, popular sports and entertainment events throughout the year.
Mixed-Use, Entertainment District Coming to Honda Center
Plans have been submitted to build two land-development projects that will form a massive lifestyle, business, dining and entertainment hub in Anaheim.
ocV!BE will be anchored by Honda Center and will include a new 6,000-capacity concert venue, 30+ restaurant concepts, four public plazas, 1.1+ million square feet of office space, including a 325,000-square-foot office tower, two new hotels with a planned 550 total rooms, plus 20 acres of parks and open space.
ocV!BE will total 115-acres and is scheduled to open by 2024 and be fully completed by 2028. This project is led by the owners of the Ducks, the Samueli Family. The ocV!BE development will create 13,000 construction jobs and 3,300 permanent jobs upon full operation. The project will produce $2 billion in one-time economic impact and a $400 million economic impact on a recurring annual basis.
This project will feature numerous walkways and bridges connecting the full 115 acres creating a sense of place for guests. A landmark feature will be a bridge crossing Katella Avenue providing a safe path from ARTIC to Honda Center, while decreasing pedestrian traffic on the streets.
