The Century Center in downtown South Bend could undergo a $80 million expansion that includes construction of a 200-room hotel on the grounds of the building.
The plans also call for a doubling of the amount of convention space, accoridng to WNDU.
Work on the convention center, itself, would cost around $45 million and, according to WNDU, could come from tax incremental financing, new markets tax credits, as well as the innkeepers tax, a food and beveage tax and other sources.
The hotel would cost around $35 million and would come from a private-sector partner, WNDU reported.
It’s all talk right now. But the conversation is expected to continue when members of the Century Center Board of Managers meets this summer.
