Concept

The concept design expands the La Crosse Center in the direction of the river. The expansion extends over Harborview Plaza (Front Street) and to the edge of Riverside Park without encroaching into the park. The concept features a 12,202 sq ft ballroom and prefunction area that overlook Riverside Park. The design includes a 7,584 square feet exhibit hall. The concept would remove and replace the existing North Hall of the La Crosse Center. The total expansion area is 61,311 sq ft.

Additional Bolt-Ons

A bolt-on will serve as an extra item and/or room expansion for the concept. These items will be chosen throughout the schematic design phase and selected based on preliminary cost and need as the project moves forward.

The decision whether to bolt-on, enlarge, or save any of these items for future expansions or renovation depends on feedback from public input, La Crosse Center staff and board, and user and client input. These decisions will result in the construction of a renovation and expansion that meets La Crosse’s budget, the La Crosse Center’s needs, and what the community desires.
