The Cobo Convention Center in Detroit completed work on its new Grand Riverview Ballroom, a 40,000-square-foot space in the former 12,000-seat Cobo Arena. The facility now features a hydraulic lift stage, 40-foot-high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling views of the Detroit River and Canada, and an additional 21,000 square feet of meeting space. The recently completed project is part of the $279 million Cobo Center renovation that began in September 2010 and is expected to wrap up in 2015.
