City of Peoria
Prime Architect in association with Populous
This signature sports complex was the first to house two major league teams in one facility – the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners. This strategy has become the model for several spring training facilities throughout the Valley.
The Peoria Sports Complex was originally constructed in 1994, after twenty years the facility has held up well. However, the facility needed to upgrade its amenities to keep up with the current trends and needs of both teams. Through the years, teams located in the valley started to use their facilities year-round to rehabilitate injured players, work on player development, and future player scouting.
Each clubhouse was expanded to 68,000-sf. The improvements include the renovation of both the major and minor league training facilities, coaching staff areas, meeting space, and administrative space as well as updating the existing weight rooms.
