The 320,000-square foot facility is expected to host more than 230 events a year and create hundreds of jobs. According to Southwest Michigan First, it is expected to pump $57 million annually into the local economy.

The event center will include two basketball courts, practice ice, an event hall and two parking decks. It will also house Western Michigan University’s men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as its hockey program.

“We’re excited about the future of this project and honored to collaborate with stakeholders committed to ensuring the arena and event center benefits the entire Kalamazoo community,” WMU Director of Athletics Dan Bartholomae said Friday in a statement. “Together, we look forward to creating a space that not only houses national championship programs but also becomes a source of pride and shared enjoyment for the community we call home.”

Kalamazoo County’s Board of Commissioners in July 2023 approved closing on the property.
