AUSTIN | Austin Convention Center Expansion & Hotel | FEET | FLOORS

Project: Austin Convention Center Expansion & Hotel

A proposal to expand the existing Austin Convention Center westward could help provide enough extra meeting space for larger conventions, said Mark Tester, director of the city’s Convention Center Department.

Gensler ultimately proposed expanding Austin Convention Center to the west, adding 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, 65,000 square feet of meeting space and a 56,700-square-foot ballroom as well as additional underground parking and loading dock space.

The city proposal also calls for a 3-acre “urban park” atop the expanded convention center, Tester said.
