GILA RIVER ARENA - GLENDALE, ARIZONA
IFG was retained by the City of Glendale during the development of the Gila River Arena, the home of the NHL Coyotes in Glendale, Arizona. The 17,653-seat, $180 million arena is a 600,000 square foot facility located on a 223-acre site and is part of a 6 million square foot mixed use development including retail, restaurants, office and entertainment uses.
IFG represented the City of Glendale during the negotiations, design, and construction of the arena. IFG's role was to protect the interests of the City and ensure that Glendale’s investment was effectively managed.
Designed by HOK Sport+Event and constructed by Perini, the new arena opened in December 2003.
