It’s been more than five years in the making for downtown Grand Rapids, and the 20 Monroe Live entertainment complex was worth the wait. Titan Interiors is proud to be part of downtown’s exciting new project that will only enhance the city’s reputation as West Michigan’s focal point for entertainment, night life and culture.
Greg Gilmore, CEO of The Gilmore Collection, said the 20 Monroe Live entertainment flex space being built next to The B.O.B. will draw regional and national acts that have been bypassing Grand Rapids because the city didn’t have an appropriate downtown venue for audiences of about 2,500 people or less.
That’s sure to happen, now that Greg’s company has signed an agreement with Live Nation’s House of Blues Entertainment Division to act as its “home” for West Michigan. House of Blues operates about 60 venues nationwide, including The Fillmore in San Francisco and branded House of Blues locations.
With an art deco retro interior, 20 Monroe Live will capture the spirit of the great night clubs and theaters of 20th Century America, but add is own spin with 21st Century flexibility and technology. The facility will have reserved seating shows for audiences of 1,700, with scalable options of 500-1200 seats, and total capacity for about 2,500 people. 20 Monroe Live will also feature state-of-the-art sound, lights and production capabilities for spectacular shows.
Our crews are working hard installing metal stud framework, drywall, EIFS, fire proofing and K 13 sound insulation to hit the spring 2017 deadline, and it’s fun to watch the project come to life.
