E-Town Hall To Begin Construction

Public Radio Capital (PRC) has granted a $2 million loan to E-TOWN, which will allow it to begin the first phase of construction on the new, 17,000 square-foot E-TOWN HALL. The organization purchased an old church in the middle of downtown BOULDER, C, that it plans to convert to an acoustically ideal listening venue.
E-TOWN will continue with its capital campaign, but the first phase will include the majority of the mechanical systems, roofing and utilities, along with renovation of 25 percent of the interior; the section that will house administrative offices and editing studios. E-TOWN hopes to begin Phase II later in 2010. Once completed, the new venue will be a LEED certified green. E-TOWN HALL will also include a smaller theater for live performances and broadcasts, a "Community Room," a recording facility for radio and TV and dressing rooms for visiting artists.
"We could not be more appreciative of Public Radio Capital’s efforts. Their goals are aligned with ours, and their support will help keep this ambitious project moving forward," said E-Town founder NICK FORSTER.
