Architecture in Fort Worth

Ed and Rae Schollmeier Arena

2900 Stadium Drive - 1961; 2015

Formerly Daniel-Meyer Coliseum

 

This 7,200 seat coliseum was designed by Fort Worth Architect Joseph R. Pelich and it opened in December of 1961.  The primary purpose of the facility is to serve as a basketball arena.  It was originally named after former TCU football and basketball coach, Dutch Meyer and former TCU board member, Milton Daniel.  In April 2013, a $45 million renovation was announced for the building.  The area was fully modernized with additional concourses, restrooms, and upgraded concessions.  The renovation expanded the existing entry with a new facade that matches the rebuilt Amon Carter Stadium next door.  In addition to the concourse work, the court was lowered several feet to allow the installation of additional courtside seating.  Construction began in March 2014 and was completed in December of 2015.
