Much work has been done in the performance hall of the Robinson Center. Officials say the million overhaul should be completed by November 2016.

We got a sneak peek at the work going on at the Robinson Center Music Hall on Thursday, and the demolition man has been busy. 

It’s all part of a $68 million project that includes increasing the building size, improving acoustics, upgrading the loading area, and building a new conference center and grand hall that overlooks the Arkansas River.

Work on the north side of the Robinson Center continues. Officials say the million overhaul should be complete by November 2016.

The renovation is about six months in right now. In the performance hall, most of the seating is gone, the walls are stripped and there’s a large hole in the ceiling. Right now, pretty it is not, but we know the end result will be more than worth it in the end.

We snapped a few photos of the renovation progress for you. For more information on the overhaul, including renderings and a video, check out our sister publication, Arkansas Business, here.
