The Huntington Center is a multi-purpose facility that can seat more than 8,000 cheering fans whether they
are there to see their favorite hockey team take down their fiercest rival or to take in a concert by one of the biggest music
artists of the day. This $105 million facility is an entertainment hot spot located in Toledo, Ohio in Lucas Country. The
Huntington Center has played host to some of the biggest events and hottest music stars in the world.
The facility opened
in October of 2009, and has been a hub for the most exciting entertainment events in the country. While it is home to the
ECHL ice hockey team the Toledo Walleye, it is also home to other events including concerts, lectures, family shows and awards
shows. There's never a dull moment at this at this facility, and fans can't seem to get enough of the non-stop action.
events center not only entertains hundreds of thousands of fans each year, but it also is poised to become the first newly-built
LEED sports arenas in the country. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is a rating system that
quantifies the amount of energy efficiency that goes into the design, construction, maintenance and operation of green buildings.
The building is working towards a high rating on the LEED scale by incorporating green elements into the maintenance and operation
of their facility. The center includes a green wall on the outside of the building that uses plant life to cool and shade
the entrance of the facility, capitalizes on mass transit and re-uses rain water to water landscaping.
While many of the events presented at the Huntington Center are entertaining and full of action, there's nothing
like taking in a intense hockey game. The Toledo Walleye of the North Division of the Eastern Conference of the ECHL have
played some cutthroat grudge matches inside the events center. The team has been affiliated with teams like the Detroit Red
Wings, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Rockford IceHogs and the Grand Rapids Griffins. The team was founded in the early 1990s,
and has since become one of the most successful franchises in the division. Every year the stakes are even higher, and the
team is eager to see their supporters filling up the stands.
And if basketball isn't your thing, there are plenty of
other events to suit your tastes. Since it opened, the BUC has been the site for some of the most amazing sold-out shows and
events. They have hosted big-name artists and musical groups like Daughtry, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood and Elton John.
The center has also been the site of World Wrestling Entertainment events and performances from prominent comedians like Jeff
The Huntington Center is located in Toledo, Ohio, which is located on the western end
of Lake Erie. The city was founded on the banks of the Maumee River. It became a thriving and heavily populated area during
its early days because of the Miami and Erie Canal. Although the shipping and railroad industries helped to found the city,
Toledo is now a city of industry and technology. It has also become known for its art community, successful education system
and thriving healthcare industry.
Another unique aspect of the thriving city is the prominence of "green jobs." These
jobs began springing up in the early 2000s when local businesses and researchers became interested in solar energy. Some ambitious
companies like Xunlight and First Solar have opened up plants in Toledo to further capitalize on this growing industry.
The Huntington Center has the capacity to entertain more than 8,000 guests at the same time. There
are several seating options for those who come to watch an ECHL hockey game or a live concert, and every seat in the house
is a good one. The seating configuration is similar for each event at the Huntington Center. Seating for events are configured
into two sections—an upper deck and a lower deck—with the rink or stage in the center of the arena. Whether you're
seeing an intense grudge match between the Toledo Walleye and their fiercest opponents or a live performance by Elton John,
you will find that any seat in this state-of-the-art arena is a good one.
The Huntington Center
is not only in the center of the action, but it is also one of the most unique entertainment centers in the country. It features
some of the most inventive and "green" elements ever employed in an arena setting. The facility boasts a 900-foot "green wall"
that helps to cool and shade the glass=enclosed main entrance, and the use of a light-colored roof membrane that helps to
The facility is also unique because it is managed by SMG. SMG maintains more than 200 venues in the
