Facts to know about Toyota center: –
- Construction of this center began in July 2001, and the new arena was officially opened in October 2003. The total costs were $235 million, with Houston paying the majority and the Rockets paying for enhancements. Toyota paid US$100 million for the naming rights.
- In May 1995, several Texas sports teams, including the Houston Rockets, proposed legislation to dedicate state tax revenue to build new arenas.
- According to the agreement signed, Houston bought the land for the arena and an adjoining parking garage, which was near the George R. Brown Convention Center, and paid for it by selling bonds and borrowing $30 million. Morris Architects designed the 750,000-square-foot (70,000 m2) building, and Hunt Construction was contracted to build the arena.
- The arena can seat 18,104 for a basketball game, 17,800 for ice hockey games, and 19,300 for concerts. The prices for courtside seats to a Rockets game in the new arena were raised by as much as 50% compared to prices in the team’s old home, while upper-deck seat prices were lowered.
