CLEVELAND, OH - Quicken Loans Arena will soon have a new look and amenities. The final piece of the plan was approved Monday night.
The $140 million project is scheduled to begin this summer. It will transform the 22-year-old Quicken Loans Arena adding additional space including restaurants and public areas.
Cleveland City Council approved the deal Monday night after Cuyahoga County Council members voted in favor of it several weeks ago. The funding will come in part from the Cavs, the city and county.
The deal also means the Cavs will extend its lease through 2034.
The approval follows a last minute addition of the deal by the Cavs to match funding coming into the Q and renovate basketball courts at city rec centers.
