$6 Billion in Destination Investment Taking Place in Anaheim

Approximately $6 billion in investment is coming to Anaheim around the city’s world-famous theme parks and around Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

The investment includes the coming Stars Wars-themed land at Disneyland Park but much more: four new luxury hotels and other lodging, expansion of the Anaheim Convention Center, plus new homes, shopping, dining, offices and hotels at the Platinum Triangle around Angel Stadium.

This level of investment in Anaheim is among the largest in the U.S.

It comes as Anaheim is enhancing its visitor industry on a global scale. More than $3.5 billion in investment is coming to the Anaheim Resort District alone -- a 1,100-acre area that includes the Disney Resort, Anaheim Convention Center and hotels.

With the luxury hotel market  growing quickly, these new properties help secure Anaheim’s place on the map of world-wide destinations.
