Toyota Center is spread out over six blocks in the eastern edge of downtown Houston. The arena opened in 2003 at a cost of more than $200 million. The court is almost 32 feet below street level and provides the largest lower level of any arena in the country, according to the arena website. An interactive area, the Memorial Hermann Sky Court, at the north end of the upper concourse includes vertical jump, height and wingspan comparisons to players, as well as several other interactive kiosks. Toyota paid $100 million for naming rights. The Toyota Center hosted 2006 and 2013 NBA All-Star Games.
