Armature Works will offer a variety of areas for indoor and outdoor events when it opens in spring 2017. While the 70,000-square-foot structure dates back to 1910, an extensive renovation project is adding modern technology such as LED video walls and ambient lighting. The venue will have three multipurpose event spaces. At more than 10,000 square feet, A.W. Gathering will be the largest venue. With hardwood floors and exposed brick walls, this room will seat 800 or hold 1,200 for receptions. Adjacent to this space will be the A.W. Courtyard, a 4,150-square-foot open-air location that will seat 300 or hold 400 for a reception. Smaller groups can use the 2,623-square-foot A.W. Theater, which will have views of the Hillsborough River and downtown Tampa, and seat 200 or hold 225 for receptions.
