Shown above and right is the iconic Walter Pyramid, where the 2019 Pacific Section Convention will be held. It is the home of the Long Beach State University 49ers men's and women's basketball teams, and the men's and women's volleyball teams. The Pyramid officially opened on November 30, 1994, when it hosted a 49ers men's basketball game against the Detroit Titans. It was designed by Don Gibbs, and built by the Nielson Construction Company of San Diego at a cost of about $22 million. This unique structure measures 345 feet (105 m) along the bottom edge of each side, which makes it a true pyramid, and one of only three such buildings in the United States - the others being the Luxor Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, and the Pyramid Arena in Memphis, Tennessee. The Walter Pyramid rises 18 stories above the Long Beach City skyline, with an exterior clad in sheets of dark-blue corrugated aluminum. It is named for Mike and Arline Walter to honor a $2.1 million donation that they made to the university. Mike Walter is a former vice-president of the Levi Strauss Company, and from 1993 to 2000 he was dean for the Long Beach State College of Business Administration.
