When complete, the four-level PAC will total 93,471 square feet and seat approximately 1,800 spectators. The venue is designed to accommodate full-scale Broadway productions.
"It's going to be a fantastic facility. This is symbolic of the growth in the Valley", said Mayor Darling.
The design of the facility includes cast-in-place concrete walls approximately 90 feet high at the perimeter and interior of the stage and proscenium. The project site is located directly southeast of the McAllen Convention Center.
