Mark Cuban Has Big Plans For Mavs New Headquarters (Photos)

Mavericks New Headquarters Dallas Design DistrictSince moving into the American Airlines Center (AAC) in 2001, the Dallas Mavericks have conducted practice on an individual basketball court in the arena’s basement (pictured below), with the team’s entire basketball operation housed within the Mavs’ locker-room area and surrounding office spaces. While Dallas’ game operation area has remained top notch, the squad’s practice and office scenario has grown both antiquated and cramped.

To remedy this situation, the club is getting ready to move into a brand new practice facility and basketball operations headquarters, positioned directly across Interstate 35-E from the AAC. The 13-acre site, located in the Dallas Design District, will house a state-of-the-art practice facility (with two basketball courts), as well as a modern and more spacious office layout for all basketball related personnel.

This link provides a glimpse into the construction of the new HQ, with the below photo providing a look at the 13-acre site (intersection of Inspiration Drive and Stemmons Fwy), including the large building that will house the Mavs, once renovation of the current structure is complete. Soft Layer Technologies will remain in place, at the building’s southern end, as a result of the long-term lease the company currently holds.

Mark Cuban’s future plans for the site include building additional structures, which would allow the franchise’s business operation to once again be in the same place as the basketball side. Currently, the team’s administrative office is located 2 miles east of the AAC, in Dallas’ Deep Ellum neighborhood.

Cuban’s future goals also call for the construction of a public café and plaza, team store, museum and theater.

The Mavericks bold approach to their new headquarters is similar (though considerably smaller) to the incredible new Cowboys mega complex, located 22 miles north, in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas.
