Minneapolis Officials Announce Proposed $150M Renovation Of Target Center
Published February 2, 2011
WORSE BY ASSOCIATION: In Minneapolis, Michael Rand writes Target Center "never has been a great venue," but for many years it "was an average place to watch a sporting event in a metro area filled with similarly decent places." The arena's "curse" comes from the "overwhelming upgrade the Twin Cities has seen with its sports facilities in just the past couple of years." Target Center "now not only pales in comparison to Xcel Energy Center, but also to TCF Bank Stadium and most importantly" Target Field. Rand: "Target Center is hardly a dump. It's comfortable. There are navigation quirks, but accessibility is generally good" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 2/2).
