Originally, the facility was to be built closer to the city’s downtown area, but protests from local residents prompted a rethink of the USD $1BN project.

Located on the city’s waterfront, the Chase Centre will also include a number of additional functions, including 100,000 square feet of retail space, 580,000 square feet of offices, 950 underground parking spaces and a further 300 spaces for bicycles.

The project also includes 3.2 acres of public space, including a 240,000 feet of waterfront-facing plaza.
Sustainability measures incorporated into the plan include an advanced greywater and rainwater recovery system as well as a strict waste management and recycling regime.

Although analyses have shown that integrating renewables would not bring any significant benefits due to the site’s relatively small area, the developer still aims for a LEED Gold Certification, stressing the arena’s good public transport links and the measures mentioned above.
