Cobo Arena, Detroit, MI

Cobo Center, formerly Cobo Hall, is a convention center along Jefferson and Washington avenues in downtown Detroit, Michigan. It was named after Albert Cobo, mayor of Detroit from 1950 to 1957. Cobo Arena closed in 2010, and was a multi-use arena attached to Cobo Center. The structure was renovated for adaptive reuse and reopened in 2015. No longer an arena, the space holds a 40,000 square foot Grand Riverview Ballroom with pre-function, outdoor terrace, 21 additional meeting rooms and a 30,000 square-foot three-story glass atrium overlooking the Detroit River. Cobo Arena was built in 1960 with seating for 12,000 and had a rich history until 2010 when it closed: home court of the NBA's Detroit Pistons from 1961 to 1978; venue of the NCAA Men's Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships from 1965 to 1981; hosted many concerts through the years.
