What to Expect from the Kennedy Center's $100M Expansion

For the first time in 50 years since the Kennedy Center's opening, the performance arts center will be expanded by a total 72,000-square-feet. District Source reported that the National Capital Planning Commission approved the $100 million expansion last week. Plans for the planned floating pavilion on the Potomac River fell through due to environmental concerns and controversy from the boating community. The approved designs for the expansion will involve construction of two new pavilions connected to the main building as well as a below-ground addition.
