It's nice, but seems very standard. I would have thought this opportunity would have been seized to make a real architectural statement of some sort.

I'm impressed with the design but yes I was expecting a more bolder design. I really love the limestone facade on the entrance. Its unique.

New details about amenities for the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts. The opening will take place in 2019. The whole project will cost $80 million and will have 3,000 white oak seats upholstered in red. It will be the largest performing arts center in the Carolinas. The Durham Performing Arts Center is currently the largest with 100,000 square feet and 2,800 seats. The Steven Tanger Center will be 111,000 square feet with 3,000 seats. One side of the center will have a roof top terrace overlooking Lebauer Park and the North Elm St side will have a street side patio area. Greensboro managed to accomplish something that very few cities can do and that's to build an $80 million civic project with just user fees, hotel/motel tax and millions of dollars from generous donors and foundations. The taxpayers will not have to foot the bill.

I actually think it looks pretty neat, though the signage seems to be a tad bland. But to accomplish a project of this magnitude without any use of local taxpayer funds is great.

I agree about the signage. But im hoping that it will be different. I really like the interior and the ring lighting above is different. All I can say is its about time. War Memorial Auditorium was an embarrassment to our community. It looked like a big high school auditorium. Other communities in the state are taking notice of Durham and Greensboro. Asheville and Fayetteville now want downtown performing arts centers. Wilmington just recently opened a 1, 000 plus seat downtown venue.

Be easy on War Memorial, it was old, but it was probably the stuff back in the day. Plus entities that don't have a market tend to be allowed to get outdated.
