A 3,500-capacity concert hall is coming to the Downtown South development, its developer, Kane Realty, said Wednesday.

What is happening: Kane said the venue will be operated by AEG Presents, one of the nation’s largest event companies responsible for booking acts like Taylor Swift and The Rolling Stones.

Details: Construction of the 70,000 square foot site – complete with a rooftop lounge – is expected to begin next year and be completed in 2024.

  • He will also be available for private events.

Background: Downtown South is one of Raleigh’s most ambitious projects. It will add several office and residential towers to the east side of South Saunders Street near Interstate 40.

  • The project was spearheaded by Steve Malik, owner of Kane and NC Courage, who originally envisioned the area to house a football stadium.
  • A spokesperson for Kane said the concert hall had no impact on the future of the stadium, which remains uncertain.

Between the lines: The music venue could become an important host for concerts in the near future.

  • Red Hat, one of the city’s most popular concert halls, sits on land that is part of a planned city convention center expansion and could be redeveloped.
