Here’s a look at the recently approved designs of the new arts and concert venue that could start being built as soon as 2014 in Sugar Land. Drawn up by Washington, D.C., firm Martinez & Johnson, the 200,000-sq.-ft., 6,500-seat theater will eventually sit on 39 undeveloped acres in Telfair, just off the Southwest Fwy. and University Blvd.
Construction on the theater, vaguely reminisicent of Caudill Rowlett Scott’s Jones Hall at 615 Louisiana, is expected to take about 2 years.
