Kraus-Anderson to Wrap Up $42M Renovation of La Crosse Center in Wisconsin This Month
LA CROSSE, WIS. — The Madison office of Kraus-Anderson (KA) is about to complete construction of the $42 million renovation and expansion of La Crosse Center. The civic center is located at 400 La Crosse St. in the western Wisconsin town of La Crosse. The center has remained open during construction, which is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
Designed by ISG Architects, the two-year renovation project expands the sports, entertainment and event center into 120,000 square feet of multipurpose space. There is a new 12,892-square-foot ballroom and 7,226-square-foot atrium along with seven meeting rooms and office space. The project also includes a rooftop terrace and a new lobby with a staircase to the ballroom level.
KA renovated the existing arena with new seating; a higher-quality sound system; ADA-compliant platforms and railings; and upgraded and enlarged dressing rooms, locker rooms, restrooms and concession stands. In addition to sporting events and concerts, La Crosse Center will host weddings, conferences and trade shows.
