Charleston Coliseum Expansion

Plans are moving forward to expand the SMG-managed North Charleston Coliseum in South Carolina.

The 17-year-old facility will get an $18 million upgrade including two 15,000-square-foot additions, according to the Post And Courier.

Other upgrades to the 14,000-capacity venue include moving the ticket booth and some concession stands as well as upgrading the sound system and overhead rigging. Also, a section of eight box seats will get bathroom and serving areas.

City officials will begin accepting bids June 3. The first phase is expected to be completed by next spring, the paper said.
