Phase 2: Steinmetz Hall & The Green Room

It's so close you can almost hear it.

Decades of dreaming, planning and hard work helped us finish phase 1: Dr. Phillips Center as you know it today. But things will look a lot different in 2020, when Steinmetz Hall and The Green Room open their doors, and phase 2 fulfills the vision of everyone who’s been involved.


This unique multiform theater will give both show-goers and concert-listeners the ultimate experience—without amplification. The stage, walls and floor will move, getting longer, shorter or lower to host all kinds of entertainment. And with your choice of 1,700 seats on three tiers, you can enjoy a range of “unplugged” local, national and international performances that count on fantastic sound.


This large rehearsal room and performance space will allow performers and guests to come together for musical exploration, recording, creative programming and intimate events—including performances by the 19-member Jazz Orchestra at Dr. Phillips Center. The Green Room will also have its own entrance on South Street.


To round out a great guest experience at Steinmetz Hall and The Green Room, we’re building additional lobby space and full kitchen facilities.


Whiting-Turner, the construction manager for phase 2, broke ground in March 2017.

June 2018 Update:

  • In first quarter of 2018, we raised $1.8 million in private donations.
  • We’re now within 2% of our total capital campaign goal for competing construction.
  • After more than 12 months of laying the intricately designed foundation, Steinmetz Hall is truly taking shape as crews erect the stage and theater walls.

During construction on the north side of Dr. Phillips Center, South Street’s sidewalk will be closed. We recommend parking at City Commons Garage and entering from Seneff Arts Plaza.
