unique MULTI-PURPOSE venue creates new civic space
The Entertainment Sports Arena is an innovative civic space combining an NBA training facility with a 4,200-seat public arena for Events DC. It serves as the first WNBA-dedicated facility in the league and as a state-of-the-art training center for the Washington Wizards, which includes all sports training amenities that meet NBA standards and drive future recruitment opportunities. It also hosts games for the GoGos G-League team. The design features community-centric elements, such as a U-shaped bowl, ideal for concerts, events and E-sports. The arena will serve as a catalyst for opportunities in Ward 8 and create a new citywide destination. It is certified LEED Silver. ROSSETTI worked in partnership with DC firm, Marshall Moya Design on this project.
