CANCELLED: Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts

September 23, 2019, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Cost: $50.00

Fulfilling the original dream of Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Steinmetz Hall and the Green Room will allow guests to enjoy a range of “unplugged” local, national and international artists in all-new, one-of-a-kind performance spaces. These spaces complete the 698,312-square-foot facility in the heart of downtown Orlando. The entire project includes: three theaters, intimate performance space, grand lobby and other public lobbies, rehearsal rooms, classrooms, event space, administrative offices, a rooftop terrace, a public plaza, and production and support. Steinmetz Hall will be one of the world’s most acoustically perfect halls, designed to achieve an N1 sound rating—the lowest level at which humans can detect sound. The entire theater is encased inside an exterior concrete frame. Between the theater and the frame are 437 18-inch steel and rubber isolation pads that act as shock absorbers to deaden sound from traffic and passing trains, and other ambient noise.

The Ground Transportation Facility is to be a 2 phased construction 2-story building that will support the various programmatic functions of the Landside Terminal Building that includes an estimated 240,000 gross square feet (GSF) for the final configuration.
