The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, a West Palm Beach landmark known for hosting world-class musical, dance, and dramatic performances, is getting ready for a $50 million expansion project designed by architecture, engineering, and interior design firm LEO A DALY.
The iconic theater, originally designed by Eberhard Zeidler with LEO A DALY as associate architect, will receive a number of upgrades. These include increasing the size of the Dreyfoos Hall Lobby, implementing new technology throughout, creating a pedestrian-friendly plaza, adding a new valet parking garage, building a new entrance/exit ramp to the existing garage and improving traffic flow on and around the campus.
“Over the next 22 months, the Kravis Center will begin to transform into an even brighter beacon for Palm Beach County,” Judith Mitchell, CEO for the Kravis Center, said in a statement. “The Kravis Center welcomes more than 500,000 guests every year, and this expansion will accommodate a growing base of customers with expanded ease of accessibility to enjoy our schedule of performances.”
Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.
