HARTFORD, Conn. (CelebrityAccess) The aging XL Center in downtown Hartford, Conn., is up for grabs, sold “as is.”
The Capital Region Development Authorities has issued a Request for Proposal for the venue, which was built in 1975 and got a new roof about five years ago, according to the Hartford Courant. The CRDA originally attempted to have the venue get a $250 million makeover but state government eventually suggested that the formerly known Veterans Memorial Coliseum get sold.
One bidder, private equity firm Oak Street Real Estate Capital, has already made a bid, the paper reported.
The venue hosts the UConn men’s and women’s basketball, UConn hockey and the AHL minor League’s Wolf Pack. Proposals are due June 29.
