Once again with the East Bank proposal, I measured the footprint of the current TPAC from Google earth and found it was about the size of a soccer field. So, it would fit in well to the proposed revitalization of the East Bank by occupying a relatively small piece of land. It shouldn't subtract much from all those billions the city and Adams family is set to make from all the valuable real estate. You could conceivably start construction without waiting for the current stadium to be demolished.

The Austin Texas PAC might be a good example, if not a tad small. It was completed in 2015 at $350 sf.

It could look something like this.

There are several ways to mitigate flooding with walls, extra ground elevation, or stilts. It's just a problem to be solved.

This ^^^^^ was a clip I made from google earth of the Hobby Center and overlaid onto the conceptual East Bank stadium and area revitalization conceptual design.

I'm not sure how you pay for a new performing arts center, but some combination of donations, event revenues, naming rights and a fair portion of the new leasing revenues from the current TPAC and Polk Building site could be used.

As someone who sometimes works at TPAC, and sometimes is a patron at TPAC, I would prefer any relocation take the venue farther from the chaos of the stadium and Lower Broadway, not closer!

I am with you on that. Maybe they could find a spot in the Reed District or Beaman Project or anyplace Not near that Circus they call Lower Broadway

Exactly where it should go....along with a brand new art museum, an interactive car museum, the Adventure Science center and a an interactive Museum of Music.

Yes, we need a theater and museum district. And I believe that’s a great location.

That site on the mall would be a good location. Downtown, but not in the craziness of lower broad. Could be convenient to germantown restaurants, etc. Helps build a museum/cultural theme around bicentennial mall.

Isn’t that current structure a data infrastructure center for the state. And don’t I remember from somewhere in the past that the state was considering relocating that infrastructure perhaps to an offsite data center?

It was my understanding that the state wanted to relocate the data center.
