Target Center is a valuable City-owned community asset that has been heavily used for 21 years. It hosts 200 events per year and is the 28th busiest building in the nation, attracting 1.2 million visitors from the entire upper Midwest. Target Center has been a tremendous economic boom for Minnesota for two decades, but it's no longer competitive in the marketplace. Fortunately, we can restore its competitiveness for one-third the cost of a replacement facility.
With a new design, Target Center will not only look top-of-the-line, but will deliver a top-notch fan experience. Fans can expect improved eating and drinking options, more premium seats, a new restaurant with a stunning view or Target Field and better clubs. These are the kinds of things that create a great terrific visitor experience and restore financial sustainability. The redesigned look will match the rejuvenated downtown and continue to make Minneapolis a hot spot for entertainment.
