THE PALACE TO BUILD NEW ENTRANCE AND ENTERTAINMENT CENTER
Published April 19, 1995
Palace Sports and Entertainment President Tom Wilson said yesterday they will spend $15M to build a new entrance for The Palace at Auburn Hills. The plan features a 100,000-square-foot, glass-walled addition, to be finished by November, that will "completely remake" the west entrance. Inside, a new two-level atrium lobby will feature video displays, a virtual reality arcade, interactive music areas, and a Walk of Fame honoring entertainers. With the expansion, Palace owners "resolved to capture a greater share of the entertainment dollar" as families will be able to arrive early and spend time in the entertainment center. The plans will be designed by Rossetti & Associates, the Birmingham, MI, architectural firm that did The Palace's original design (John Gallagher, DETROIT FREE PRESS, 4/19).
