Multipurpose Event Center Project

Multipurpose Event Center Project

The City of Brownwood and Municipal Development District have been discussing and developing plans for a new multipurpose event center for over four years. After researching numerous event centers in cities across the state, City leadership decided to focus on preserving and redeveloping existing buildings in the Historic Depot Civic and Cultural Complex to embrace the rich history of the area, coordinate with existing meeting facilities, and reduce the cost of building from ground up.

The goal of this project is to create a new rentable multipurpose event space with indoor and outdoor components to help facilitate events and conventions that will create a positive economic impact on the local economy and business growth.

Ice House Stage/Pavilion

The existing Ice House building on Lee Street is in the process of being demolished down to erect a new structure in its place. This new structure will function as a stage for large events, small gatherings, and concerts. It can also serve as spill-over outdoor space for the larger event center. A small enclosed structure will be built adjacent to the stage to contain support space and additional meeting rooms. The open event green space we can easily accommodate 7,500 spectators with additional depending on crowd control and setup. The max occupancy for under the Pavillion is 462 with tables and chairs, and just under 1,000 seated auditorium style.

Reunion Lawn / Outdoor Area

The site surrounding the Ice House will be divided into the large viewing lawn/festival ground stretching east (the current RV Park) and a small viewing lawn to the south. This will allow for more flexibility use for all size and types of events. The large viewing lawn will be fenced and will be available as a mini-festival ground for a variety of outdoor events. Parking will be developed in surrounding City-owned property along with new property acquisition for expanded parking.

Event Center

The last phase of the project will be the development of the event center inside of what is known as the Timmins building on the corner of Baker and Greenleaf. Originally built as a warehouse for the Radford Grocery Company in the 1920s, the building will be converted into a multipurpose event center with spaces for conventions and breakout activities. Currently unnamed, the Event Center will also be ideal for banquets, weddings, and a multitude of other event types. The intent of the aesthetic is the bring in modern features while preserving the building’s original industrial character.
