The C3 Project team will host its first monthly gathering called, Pop-Updates, Thursday, Jan. 24 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Convention Center West Lobby.

“Pop-Updates are designed as informal meetings to allows residents and business owners to get the most up-to-date information about the project and to meet with any of the C3 project team members,” said Sabrina Tefft, project manager.

Residents are encouraged to RSVP for the first Pop-Update.

In addition to the monthly gatherings, project team members will participate in quarterly business walks to ensure businesses in the surrounding area have information on traffic alerts, construction, and available resources during the construction period.

C3 Project begins demolition with razing of the Panattoni Building

Earlier this month, the City began demolition of the Convention Center, starting with the Center’s Administration Offices, also known as the Panattoni Building. The demolition of the structure on the corner of 15th and K streets signals a significant early milestone for the C3 Project.

The first phase of the C3 Project began in early June 2018 with the renovation of the Memorial Auditorium, which will be completed in Spring of 2019 in time for graduation season. The Auditorium will host all scheduled performing arts events during the renovation of the Sacramento Community Center Theater, which begins Summer 2019.

Both the Community Center Theater and the Convention Center will close for construction in Summer 2019 and re-open in Winter 2020. During this time, all shows scheduled at the Community Center Theater will be relocated to the Memorial Auditorium. Meanwhile, conventions and conferences temporarily will be hosted at various venues throughout the city; downtown hotels will continue to host overnight visitors.
