It will be covered eventually. Every part of the project has featured the "green" at one point or another. Currently I do wish that they would decide to do something more creative with the coliseum walls. The gray is an improvement, but not by much. The renderings show a "lattice" feature with LED lighting. It looked fairly nice and contrasted well with the other facades and glass.

Default Name change

A new name for the Charleston Civic Center.

I think it's the right idea from a business and booking standpoint. With the upgrades, it is much more than a "civic center" now and this new name will successfully reflect that.

WV MetroNews – Charleston Civic Center gets a new name

I still wish they would consider selling naming rights. This could open up a lot of opportunity and of course bring in even more money.

They need to sell the naming rights. Today. The extra revenue will be needed for further updates, at the least.

The use of the word 'Civic Center' is dated because every other arena in the country has a naming rights sponsor. Then again, Charleston is always 20 years behind everyone else...

It can be any company that wants to put their name on the building. There are companies that have purchased naming rights on arenas and concert venues in cities where they aren't headquartered.

While I-64 isn't the most heavily traveled interstate, it does see plenty of people driving through the city and you can see the Civic Center as you pass by. If the name is large enough on that side of the building, lots of eyes will see it every year.

I vote for "Tudor's Biscuit World Center" or "Tudor's Coliseum & Convention Center". Of course it's not that simple but that there would be some great product-placement potential there.

Now I'm hungry...

The owner of Tudor's is way too cheap to spend that kind of money....

Since Dunkin Donuts is expanding in WV, and changing their name to just Dunkin, how about Dunkin Arena?

Chick-fil-A Arena is fitting for the area. Or the Mountain Dew Center?

I just want to say for those of you who haven’t seen the “Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center” yet I’m person, it really helped shape the image of downtown from the interstate and coming across the Lee street bridge. It isn’t a perfect design by any standards, but considering how bad the CC looked before this is a huge upgrade and easily the nicest convention space we have in our state. The Clendenin Street entrance is crisp, and the riverfront will be even better when they finish up the touches they are adding. What really need to happen is a large white lettered sign on the coliseum walls that says the name (preferably a company logo).

Also, the giant video board at the corner of Lee and Clendenin has a very tacky look to it.
