CAPITAL (CENTRE) MAKEOVER TAKES FLIGHT AT USAIRWAYS ARENA
Published April 2, 1998
Washington Sports & Entertainment (WS&E) Owner Abe Pollin "plans to transform" USAirways Arena into a $60M shopping, entertainment and sports complex that likely would be renamed the Capital Centre, and add upscale stores, restaurants and movie theaters, according to Jackie Spinner of the WASHINGTON POST. The renovation would leave the arena floor and some seating in place for commercial sports and concerts. WS&E will have 150 days to study the project, renegotiate the lease and meet with community leaders. WS&E will partner with MD-based development firm The Cordish Co., which is renovating a Baltimore complex that will feature the ESPN Grill (WASHINGTON POST, 4/2). The Baltimore SUN says the new Centre will be a $150M complex (SUN, 4/2).
