The performing arts center envisioned includes approximately 35,000 to 50,000 square feet to provide for adequate performance, support and public spaces. A main theater would seat approximately 500-1000 people. In addition, a multi-purpose black box would entertain around 200 and serve as a special event location when not in use.
“Ideally, the site will be located on the periphery of the Canton Street area,” said Jeff Hopkins. “This will accomplish several goals related to the project. Perhaps, most importantly, such a site will keep traffic and parking outside of the heart of the restaurant district while creating a bridge between this and other proposed projects in and around Canton Street and the Roswell Square.”
