SJ Civic Upgrades Progress

Nederlander Concerts and Team San Jose have completed the first round of improvements at the San Jose Civic Auditorium.

A final capital budget and contract to Garden City Construction was approved by the city’s redevelopment agency for phase two improvements, the companies announced.

The second phase will include new fixed and portable seating, structural and seismic upgrades, an elevator to all levels and new concession areas.

“We are delighted that Team San Jose, the City of San Jose and the Redevelopment Agency have been strong supports of the revitalization of this historic entertainment venue and that Phase 1 is now complete,” Nederlander CEO Adam Friedman said. “There is no question that when finished the San Jose Civic will regain its iconic status as the preeminent Bay Area entertainment venue hosting the very best in top headline touring talent and a top choice for corporate, convention and family events.”
