Not to be outdone by the Angels, the owners of the Anaheim Ducks have released their own development plans for the Honda Center and its 115-acre campus. Dubbed ocV!BE, the proposed mixed-use development would feature housing, office space, entertainment venues, parkland, restaurants, two hotels and parking structures. 

The master plan is part of the Platinum Triangle Vision, an effort to transform the 820-acre area that includes Angel Stadium, Honda Center and The Grove of Anaheim. The City has been trying to put it into motion since 2004 when the mostly-industrial site was rezoned.

The ocV!BE component hopes to be completed by 2028, just in time for the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. The indoor volleyball tournaments are scheduled to be played inside the Honda Center.

If approved, the project will feature 2,800 rental apartments, 15 percent of which would be reserved for affordable housing, 825,000 square feet of office space, including a new 325,000-square-foot office tower, and two centrally located hotels totaling 650 rooms.

There will also be 30 acres of public open space, complete with three distinctive plazas and 20 acres of park space, plus a five-acre riverfront park and a 6,000-capacity concert venue. A pedestrian bridge will connect ocV!BE to the nearby ARCTIC train and bus station.

Visitors will have their pick of over 30 retail and dining opportunities as well as a modern food hall spanning 68,000 square feet. A collection of club-style venues and 8,700-plus parking spaces round out the master plan.

Henry Samueli, co-founder of Broadcom Corporation and owner of the Anaheim Ducks, purchased the 10-acre plot of land surrounding the Honda Center from the City of Anaheim in November 2018. In exchange, Samueli agreed to keep the Ducks in Anaheim until at least 2048, with the option to extend the contract until 2073.

ocV!BE is anticipated to add 13,000 new construction jobs and 3,300 permanent jobs to the community. An independent analysis of the project’s economic impact indicated that it could generate over $2 billion upon completion and more than $400 million annually.

The master plan for ocV!BE will be reviewed by Anaheim officials in the coming months and, if approved, will be constructed in phases with the first segment opening in 2024.
