Erwin Center plans develop

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

We’ll soon start learning more about the future home of the University of Texas’ basketball programs. That’s because companies interested in building the school’s replacement for the Frank Erwin Center have until March 8 to submit plans under a recently published request for qualifications and proposal for a developer and operator of the new facility. The current arena site is expected to be utilized as part of the growing health care innovation district on the east edge of downtown Austin, with the parking lot located south of Mike A. Myers Stadium believed to be the most likely spot for the new arena. There is also a chance the arena could be located just south of Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, though that would mean replacing at least two other existing structures as well. Development teams selected from the initial qualification round will then have a June 18 deadline to submit a full proposal.
