Cobo Square will bring Detroit together
Flexible outdoor event space supports community programming


As part of the $279 million ongoing renovation of Cobo Center a riverfront terrace outside the new Grand Riverview Ballroom opened this spring and next year, Cobo Square will attach with it around what was the former Cobo Arena. 


Repurposed to meet current industry needs, the former Cobo Arena became: the 40,000 square-foot ballroom high-tech meeting rooms: pre-function space with floor to glass windows overlooking the Detroit River; food court with city-view lounge; broadcast studio; and 30,000 square-foot three story glass atrium. The transformed spaces now serve Cobo Center events.


The outdoor terrace and Cobo Square will wrap around the renovated spaces when it is completed in 2015, offering the outdoor city landscape to the influx of new events in Cobo Center.


Along with providing the flexible outdoor space for events, Cobo will be scheduling community programming on the square overlooking the riverfront, such as wine tasting, farmers markets, art fairs, music and outdoor movies.
