University of Washington will build $60 million basketball practice facility

March 7, 2024
The two-story, 40,000-square-foot training facility is scheduled to be completed in August 2025

The University of Washington will break ground later this year in Seattle on a $60 million high-performance basketball center.

The Seattle Times reports that the two-story, 40,000-square-foot training facility is scheduled to be completed in August 2025.

The facility will enhance training and development opportunities for the men’s and women’s basketball teams by creating equitable spaces for each program. The center will have two 9,800-square-foot practice courts, available 24 hours per day to basketball student-athletes.

The new basketball training center will replace the university’s Pavilion Pool, which is scheduled for demolition in May, and will be connected to Alaska Airlines Arena and adjacent to Husky Stadium and the Nordstrom Tennis Center.

The new facility will have a skywalk viewing area above the courts so that recruits, fans, and families can watch practices, and a welcoming foyer that will highlight notable events and players from the programs' history.

The building will have internal connections between the floor level of the Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion and Graves Annex Strength and Conditioning space.

The architect is Gensler, and the builder is Mortenson.
