History of Moda Center
Moda Center was formerly known as the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon – mainly used as an indoor arena.
In the early 1980’s, as the NBA was increasing in popularity, especially in the Northwest, it became apparent that the Memorial Coliseum which held 12,888 was no longer adequate for the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers had sold out every home game since 1977 and in 1988 was purchased by Paul Allen. By 1991 the team had made an agreement with the city of Portland to build a new multi-purpose arena on the Coliseum’s parking lot.
The bulk of the $262 million construction costs were funded by a $155 million loan from a consortium of lenders led by pension fund TIAA-CREF. As Allen was unwilling to guarantee the loan with his personal finances, the lenders demanded an interest rate of 8.99%, with no opportunity for prepayment.
The remainder of the funds came from the City of Portland – $34.5 million, Paul Allen – $46 million, and the final $10 million coming from a bond backed by box office and parking revenues.
The ground was broken in 1993, and the arena opened in 1995. At the time, the construction and demolition recycling program was the largest in the U.S.
