The Bruins won’t be the only TD Garden tenant practicing in the Allston-Brighton area.
The Celtics announced today they will be moving away from its Waltham practice facility, where they have called home since 1999, and into the new world-class practice and training facility at Boston Landing.
”We are proud to team with New Balance Development in the creation of a best-in-class athletic training and practice facility that will provide Celtics players, coaches, and training staff with the resources, technology, and programming to compete at the highest level in an increasingly competitive NBA landscape,” said Rich Gotham, President of the Boston Celtics in a press release on Celtics.com. “The Boston Landing location will bring us closer to our game day home at the TD Garden while providing high impact brand visibility.”
Construction at 40 Guest Street is set to begin this fall and should be complete by spring of 2018.
The new facility will include:
- Two state-of-the-art parquet floor basketball courts where the team will practice
- Leading edge audio-visual technology throughout the facility
- Expanded strength and conditioning, training, and recovery facilities
- Best-in-class locker rooms and players’ lounge
- Physical therapy areas including hydrotherapy pools
- Sports science and nutrition facilities
- Expanded media work room, press conference and broadcast facilities
- A flexible hospitality area for guests and hosting community relations activities
- Work space for the team’s coaching and basketball front office staffs
