#3005 Tour of the City Auditorium Project

Tour Leader: Linda Weise

The proposed renovation plan includes a multi-use rehabilitation of the building exterior and a redesign of the interior of the facility, expanding its usable floor area from 40,000 square feet to 90,000 square feet.  An addition will be built on the south side, and two new floor levels on the inside will replace the current arena seating.  The partial basement will include an orchestra pit, a versatile and multi-faceted event/theater venue, and commercial food and beverage partners. The ground floor will host retail and community partners.  The main performance venue will face the preserved proscenium arch and seat about 600 with a flat floor option for up to 730 people.


The revitalized City Auditorium will accommodate a variety of occupants including nonprofit tenant offices, leased nonprofit performance space, commercial rental bookings, food and beverage establishments, workforce development centers, and an incubator space for theater and concert productions. Additional residents in all cultural pillars are slated to include western heritage, wellness, faith community, military, and business development.   Our goal is to preserve the historic nature of the Auditorium while providing Colorado with new spaces and opportunities for diverse, creative arts experiences.  Max: 12

Location:  221 E. Kiowa St. There is parking behind the Colorado Springs City Auditorium and to the east of the Auditorium off Wahsatch.
