City Council has selected Global Spectrum, an international venue management firm, to oversee operations for the public areas of its planned City Center, including the performing arts center, family theater, meeting space and park.

The company, based in Philadelphia, oversees more than 130 public assembly facilities around the country, and nearly 24 million people attended events in its venues last year, the city said. Global Spectrum is part of Comcast-Spectacor, which operates in 48 states and owns the Philadelphia Flyers hockey team, the city said.
“We are creating a sense of place in our downtown area, and the experience, our ability to maintain activity there at varying times of the day, is a critical factor in the project’s success,” Mayor Rusty Paul said in a press release.
