North Charleston Coliseum will soon sprout wings.

The central events venue of the Lowcountry, now in its 17th year, will undergo a major expansion and renovation project starting after the Fourth of July at a cost of roughly $18 million, coliseum general manager Dave Holscher said Tuesday.

This is North Charleston Coliseum from the south entrance on the MontagueAvenue side, where the first new 15,000-square-foot wing will be added, starting in July. It will be called Montague Terrace. A similar one, yet unnamed, will be added next year on the north entrance, and the ticket office will be moved to the south side.

Two 15,000-square-foot additions will jut out at the north and south entrances, the ticket booth and most of the concession stands will be moved, bathrooms and serving areas will be added to eight box seats, the audio system will be reworked and the overhead rigging will be enhanced to allow performances to be set up more easily.

The city opens bids June 3. City Council could sign off on the project by the end of June.

The first phase, to be completed by next spring, will include expansion at the south entrance or the Montague Avenue side of the round structure, where the ticket office will be moved from the north side.

The first wing, to be called Montague Terrace, will extend from the existing concourse to the curb. Like its twin to be built on the opposite side in a second phase, it will include a 10,000-square-foot open space that can be closed off from the coliseum’s concourse to allow wedding receptions, fundraisers and performances too small for the adjacent North Charleston Performing Arts Center or the coliseum itself. A balcony will protrude from the additions as well.
