SAN ANTONIO – The city got its first look at the Alamodome’s multimillion dollar renovation Wednesday.

The $60 million move is one of the most significant improvements for the San Antonio landmark. It’s part of an effort to create a multi-use facility that’s able to compete with other venues across the country.

The Alamodome is already getting ready for next year’s Final Four.

“Thirty days after we do that event, they are going to come with a committee, even though they've already been here, but they'll come to grade us and look at how we would perform in the future for Final Four,” said Michael Sawaya, convention, sports and entertainment facilities director for the city of San Antonio.

The city is looking into a way to use the facility right now, such as lending a hand to the Houston Texans. It offered to host future games at the Alamodome in the wake of Harvey.

San Antonio is still waiting to hear back from the Texans.
