Edinburg leaders said an 8,500-seat arena planned to open in the next few years will be a smaller, nicer version of the Toyota Center in Houston with high-tech equipment, comfortable seats and first-class dining.
Owners of Rio Grande Valley Vipers will foot the bill for the $50 million, 115,799 square-foot facility. It’ll be built on 40 acres east of Interstate 69C on Alberto Road. There also will be pad sites for a hotel, restaurants and additional parking.
City leaders and the Edinburg Economic Development Corporation announced the project in partnership with the Vipers at a news conference last week.
