The Anaheim City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved the Samueli’s $4 billion OCVibe project, which will redevelop nearly 100 acres surrounding the Honda Center into a mixed-use hub with apartments, retail, offices and hotels.
The project is slated to begin construction by the end of the year, and deliver in phases starting in 2025.
“We thank the Anaheim City Council and City staff for their strong support of our vision for ocV!BE and our continued partnership with the City of Anaheim,” said Henry and Susan Samueli, the owners of the Anaheim Ducks and the managers of the city-owned arena. “We look forward to starting construction soon on this important community asset that will showcase Anaheim and Orange County, while also providing world-class entertainment and offerings for local residents, visitors, and our Anaheim Ducks fans.”
The developers hope to deliver OCVibe by the 2028 Summer Olympics when the Honda Center hosts indoor Olympic volleyball competitions.
