ST. CLOUD -- The Midtown Square Mall is about to include an event center. Midtown Fitness is expanding its facilities with the addition of 3 banquet hall rooms.

The rooms will be able to host between 50 and 225 people while open to both fitness members and the general public.

Midtown Fitness Manager Diane Cash says they look to host business networking meetings, weddings and retirement parties. She says a lot of work still needs to be completed.

The building could open as early as March 1st.

The St. Cloud City Council set a public hearing date for February 25th at last (Monday) night's meeting to approve a liquor license request.
