Frontwave Arena, a new multi-purpose sports and entertainment venue in North San Diego County, has selected Level 10 Construction to complete the construction of its 170,000-sq. ft. building. With an expected opening in the summer of 2024, the arena is located adjacent to the SoCal Sports Complex in Oceanside’s El Corazon district.
“Given the tremendous growth and vitality of North County San Diego and South Orange County, the arena provides a much-needed home for sports and entertainment and creates a space for locals, visitors and our military communities to gather,” said Frontwave Arena Chief Operating Officer Josh Elias. “Frontwave Arena will be a landmark in the community for generations to come.”
Level 10 Construction, a California-based general contractor recently completed the University of San Diego’s (USD) NCAA golf training facility designed by Phil Mickelson, and has worked on several athletic complexes in San Diego including USD’s Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Center, a host for the NCAA West Regional Championships and West Coast Conference Championships.
“We are excited to partner with Frontwave Arena for construction of this venue project in Oceanside that will serve as the center for sports, entertainment, and community events in North San Diego County,” said Mike Conroy, Level 10’s vice president of operations in San Diego.
“As we head into the final stages of construction, we look forward to setting the new standard for sports and entertainment in North County,” stated Frontwave Arena CEO Phil Salvagio.
Located in Oceanside, California, the 7,500-capacity arena will showcase the best and brightest names in music of all genres, headline comedy, family shows, and community events with 16 luxury suites, VIP viewing decks, exclusive lounges and an open-air patio. An expansive outdoor plaza will host performances, activities, and more. Frontwave Arena is expected to open in the summer of 2024.
