AEG and PRISA Group have partnered with AEG Facilities to develop, manage and operate a new 6,000-seat concert and entertainment venue in San Jose, Puerto Rico; it is set to open in early 2019.

The 105,000-square foot facility will have the capacity to host a variety of functions, including events, concerts, banquets, festivals, award ceremonies and corporate events.

 The venue will be located in District Live!—a hospitality and entertainment district. It will features an eight-screen premium Caribbean Cinemas VIP Cineplex, a 170-room hotel luxury hotel with 6,000 square feet of meeting space, a 44,000-square-foot plaza with indoor and outdoor presentation stages, an 18,000-square-foot, day-and-night disco and more.

“Situated just steps from one of the most picturesque waterfronts as well as a thriving convention center and nearby urban core, District Live! will instantly become one of the area’s most visited destinations for both residents and tourists alike,” says Bob Newman, President, AEG Facilities.
