Challenged to stay relevant in the ultra-competitive sports and entertainment landscape, Minneapolis’ Target Center is the latest arena to undergo a major revitalization. The $145 million renovation project touched nearly every surface of the building and successfully transformed the Target Center back into a world-class venue.
In addition to a new signature façade and glass atrium, updates to the 19,000 seat arena included a new center-hung scoreboard (the largest in the Upper Midwest), new premium spaces, improved suites, all new seats, an upgraded sound system and digital signage, and modernized concourse areas. The three-phase project began in May 2016 and was completed in October 2017.
Originally built in 1990, the Target Center was Mortenson’s inaugural sports project and led to formation of the company’s Sports Group. It hosts approximately 200 events annually, and has 1 million visitors pass through its gates each year.
