Xcel Center Makeover

attention St. Paulites…ready?

Starting today, the Xcel Center will begin a six-week metamorphosis.

my favorite highlights:

“‘You could probably run one or two corporations for the equipment we are installing.'”

“…the convention podium will be close to center ice with an assortment of bells and whistles that the GOP wants to keep hush-hush so there is some element of surprise.”

“More than 20 miles of cable will be strung through the complex”

“Some members of the GOP’s arrangements committee will move into existing offices at the Xcel this week, and more temporary office space will be built out during the week.”

Total Days of the convention:  4

Total Days of construction (pre + post): 58
