The pandemic has resulted in repeated postponements of actions posted in the 110,000-square-foot building with a facade made primarily of limestone, glass and stucco.
The venue will cost $ 93 million – nearly $ 88 million for the project itself and $ 5 million in bond-related funding costs shared by the City of Greensboro and private donors.
No tax money was used on the construction, Brown said.
The city’s share will consist of a combination of ticket fees, parking revenues and a tax on hotel rooms.
